About Baneshwar Temple

The Baneshwar Temple in Maharashtra is one of the very few destinations in the world that appeal to both adventure lovers as well as religious travellers. It is a shrine dedicated to Lord Shiva, around 35 kilometres from Pune in the beautiful and calm Nasrapur village. It captures the essence of nature in the best possible manner. Built in around 1749 by Maratha Peshwa Nanasaheb, the Baneshwar Temple Pune has strange yet interesting artefacts in its compound. One of them is a church bell with a cross on it. It dates back to times older than the temple, pointing towards the theory that it was a souvenir taken from the Maratha victory against the Portuguese in Bassien. With amazing options like treks into the small canyon formed by the stream beside the temple and serene forests with traversable paved trails, The Baneshwar Temple offers hidden gems to a nature-loving traveller. Some of the best places to stay near Baneshwar Temple Pune are Shirwal and Katraj Junction. The best hotels near Baneshwar Temple are Amruta Golden Executive and HMR Royal Inn.

Pro Tip: Make it a point to watch and spot the rare crowned hornbills that can be found in the forests around Baneshwar.
