Pune A city with lots of places to rome around But some time we dont have idea and we miss some place because of lack of knowledge. So here is the list of 10 places which you can cover in one day....

You have to start your journey around Between 7:30 A.M. to 8:00 A.M. so that you can cover all the places on Time.

Either you can book an AC cab for full day if you are a group or family he will charge around 1500 to 2000 and cover all the location or if you are alone then take a public transport as well.

At 8:30 A.M. you have to reach your first destination:

1) Pataleshwar cave:

Its beautiful and peaceful place in Pune you can see the temple which was made around 18th century.Lord Shiva lovers have to visit this place once.

History and details of Cave:

Pataleshwar Cave Temple (likewise called Panchaleshvara or Bamburde) is a stone cut surrender sanctuary, cut out in the eighth century in the Rashtrakuta period.

The sanctuary, made of basalt shake, is devoted to the Hindu Lord Shiva. The sanctuary - a 3D square molded room around 3– 4 meters on each side - houses a linga - the image of Shiva and there are two littler cells on each side. Before the surrender is a roundabout Nandi mandapa, its umbrella formed shade bolstered by enormous square columns. This mandapa is one of the particular structures of Pataleshwar. The buckle(Cave) is situated at a lower level than the present level of the street and the surrender complex. There is a perfectly cut roundabout Nandi place of worship in the gigantic yard of the give in. The fundamental give in is rectangular on design and has a pillared patio. There are three sanctums in the give in sanctuary and the focal one houses the Shivalinga. There is a circumambulation way gave in the buckle where one can see the incomplete piece of the give in sanctuary. It creates the impression that in the wake of completing the front and the sanctum the surrender was left fragmented because of a few reasons, one of which could be the issues in the stone. Anyway the dividers in the fundamental buckle have a few frameworks drawn proposing the figures delineating stories from Indian folklore, particularly including Shiva.

Time Taken To visit: 30 min

After starting your day with Lord Shiva Prayer we will go to the next destination which is not so far from this place that is around 4.5 KM so it will took 15 min to reach here so you will reach there around 9:15A.M.

One needs to climb in excess of 100 stages to achieve the holy place of Goddess Chattushringi. In the sanctuary premises there are additionally sanctuaries of Goddess Durga and Lord Ganesh. This incorporates eight smaller than usual icons of Ashtavinayaka. These little sanctuaries are situated on the four separate hillocks.Also incorporates the sanctuary of vetal maharaj at the baner pashan end.

Story: Once there was a rich and prosperous vendor named Durlabhsheth Pitambardas Mahajan who was a vigorous adherent of Goddess Saptashrungi devi and went to every one of Her sanctuaries all over the place. In any case, as he developed more seasoned, he could never again travel and this ruined him from going to the sanctuaries. At that point one night the Goddess Saptashrungi devi showed up in his fantasy and let him know, "whether you can not come to me, I will come to you and remain close you." She instructed him to go to a mountain arranged in the North-West of Pune and burrow there.
