The Temple is a great place for peace and tranquility. Simple and clean environment. If you are a spritiual person you will be inspired by Jungli Maharaj Samathi. If you are religious person it is a nice place to meditate on Lord Shiva.

JM Road has this little treasure hidden in it,. Adjacent to Jungli Maharaj Mandir this little cave temple is absolute pleasure to visit. Calm and serene. NIce to sit in the premises or under giant trees. I enjoy tracking the fault line which caused the temple to be left unfinished. Do drop in if you are visiting Pune

One of the oldest temple in pune. Easily accessible as it is situated on Jangling Maharaja (JM) road. Best place for historians and botanic scientist as temple os surrounded by trees as old as 170 years old. Though it it roadside inside the temple it is very quiet.

Very nice place. Peaceful and calm and also clean. There is a small shivling in the cave temple. Very beautifully decorated with flowers. The surroundings are calm and clean. The volunteers dont allow ppl to hand out for more time which helps in avoiding couples and college students to disturb its divinity. One should visit the place.

There is more than one temple on the grounds, both are very beautiful. Students were outside completing school work and visiting the temple as well. A gentleman helped us explore and learn more about the cave temple itself. It is an an area that is nice to walk around a bit after.

when you go to pune do go to this busy street called jangli maharaj path. at one end you will have to climb a few steps which will take you to the caves. an archeological site , would do well to be preserved better. but not that bad either.
