Most travellers have a person in their group or family who is a religious devout and simply does not want to miss the opportunity of visiting places of worship on a holiday. If you are one of the above, you would surely like to take a look at one of the following:

  • Panchganga Temple

    Constructed on the confluence of five rivers namely, Krishna, Venna, Savitri, Koyna and Gayatri, this temple is a site of major religious importance and is thronged by devotees. This temple was constructed by Raja Singha Deo and is a pure architectural marvel. When your religious pursuits are accomplished, let loose the shopper in you and pick up colourful handicrafts as souvenirs.

  • Shankar Temple

    Housing a self made Mahalinga ofLord Shiva that is considered to be superior to Shiva's twelve Jyotirlingas. It is also called Trigunatmaka, which means it has the trio of Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesha as its presiding deity. Deeply revered for the above reasons, this temple is frequented by residents and travellers alike.

  • Catholic Church

    Constructed during the British Raj this church is not operational anymore but still worth a visit for the pure aesthetic delight. Surrounded by verdant greens on all sides, one interesting fact about this place is that today, its upkeep is done by a Hindu family, which is a heartwarming toast to the cultural unity in Mahabaleshwar.

The above places are a must visit for the seekers of the solace of religion. In case you have the time and are willing to further explore the religious quotient of Mahabaleshwar, you can also explore other options like Krishnabai Temple and Mahabaleshwar Temple.
