Temple, perched on top of a hill, dates back to the time of the
Pandavas. It is situated at a distance of 50 km from the Pune city and
was built in the 13th century. Dedicated to Lord Shiva, the temple was
initially built to serve as a fort called Mangalgadh. However, it was
later converted into a Lord Shiva temple. The walls of the Bhuleshwar
temple stand adorned with intricate carvings, right from its entrance.

Bhuleshvar temple near Puna, India.
The temple is significant not only from architecture point of view, but
also mythologically. It is believed that it was here that Devi Parvati
danced for Lord Shiva and thereafter, both of them went to Kailas and
got married. The temple gets extremely crowded in the month of Shrawan,
especially at the time of Mahashivratri. Jejuri on south, Purandar on
southwest and Dhavaleshwar on west also make the place a must see.
