about bhimashankar

Bhimshankar is a carpet of greenery and legend has it that the dense jungles here served as a refuge for the Pandavas. The place is the source of River Bhima and is named after the same. The biggest draw here is the sacred Bhimashankar Temple. This is one of the 12 temples of Shiva's Jyothirlinga fame. Nature enthusiasts would do well to explore the serene hidden depths of the Bhimshankar Wildlife Sanctuary, where the local biodiversity has been diligently protected for generations.

Bhimashankar is easily visited as a day-trip from Pune. A night’s stay offers the opportunity to spend more time in this tranquil kshetra. The delights of the temple and adjoining shrines can be discovered in an hour’s time. The fairly challenging forest trek takes more than a couple of hours. The viewpoint trail takes about an hour.

The last 25 km of the drive to Bhimashankar is a narrow hill track riven with vicious potholes. Keep motion sickness medicines handy. It’s a 5-min walk from the parking lot to the temple at this tiny pilgrimage spot. Light woollens and a jacket to ward off rain and wind are indispensable at any time of the year in this elevated, mist-shrouded area. Fog rolls down early in the evening and makes driving in the hills dangerous; so don’t wait for sunset to begin your departure.
