Parvati, Pune (My Photography)

The Parvati hill is an observation point that offers a panoramic view of Pune.

The Parvati temple on the hill is considered to be one of the most scenic locations in Pune. It is the oldest heritage structure built during the rule of the Peshwa dynasty. The hill has 103 steps leading to the top of the hill where the Parvati Devi’s temple is situated. The holy ashes (angara) of the Devi temple was believed to be able to cure Kashibai, Bajirao (I) Peshwa’s wife’s injuries. Since then, Peshwa was the regular visitor of this temple.

They later built the bigger temple β€” Devdeveshwara β€” made entirely of blackstone. It was completed under Balaji Baji Rao, in 1749. Other temples are dedicated to Vitthal and Rukmini, Vishnu and Kartikeya.

Peshwa museum, Samadhi of Nana Sahib Peshwa exist there.

The old version of 10 Rupees note. It was a fresh print. I m so proud that in some part of Pune, still such notes are commonly used.
