Away from the tumult of city life, peeping from the quilt of white clouds, Bhimashankar Temple is a Hindu Shrine located 500 km northwest in Khed, near Pune, Maharashtra. Finding itself in the laps of Sahyadri Hills, the temple is a well-known Jyotirlinga among the twelve Jyotirlingas situated all over India.
In recent times, it has gained immense significance and has been declared as a Wildlife Sanctuary. The modest yet graceful temple dates back to the 13th century and is ornated with Buddha cravings as well. A trek to the Bhimashankar temple adds a pinch of adventure to your spiritual visit.
The holy shrine of Bhimashankar is a work of Naga style of architecture. The temple brilliantly showcases the intelligent work of Vishwakarma sculptors of ancient times. Situated atop the hills, the place is perfect for all nature lovers and trekkers.
The forest nearby is said to be a treasure of medicinal herbs. The site is highly picturesque and gives mind-boggling views of the nearby locations. One must visit the place for fulfilling both religious and adventurous motifs.
