About Pataleshwar Cave Temple

A rock cut temple, the Pataleshwar Cave Temple in Pune is a place for worshipping Lord Pataleshwar (Underwater God) and Lord Shiva. Constructed as old as the 8th century, this is a creation during the Rashtrakuta period. It is located in Shivaji Nagar on Jangali Maharaj Road. Architecturally, this cave temple is somewhat similar to that of Elephanta Cave. The temple comes under protected monuments of Pune. Although centuries old, the cave temple is designed with ornate stone carvings. The black rock cave also houses a museum, which finds mention in the Guinness Book of World Records. The museum showcases a grain of rice with 5000 characters inscribed on it. There are huge stone pillars, a Shiva linga, and a Nandi bull within the temple. The temple offers a historic, religious and educational experience to the visitors.
