One of the revered temples of Pune, the Chaturshringi Mandir should be on your list of places to visit when you’re in Pune. Located on Senapati Bapat Road near Pune University in Gokhale Nagar, this temple has been the place for the devotees of Mahakali and Shri Chaturshringi for ages. The word “Chaturshringi” is derived from the word “Chattu” which means “Mountain with four peaks” and represents faith and power. The main temple also includes idols of Goddess Durga, Ashtavinayaka and Ganesha.
The temple is placed on a slope, 90 ft high and around 125 ft wide. It is looked after the Chaturshringi Mandir Trust and has been well-maintained for ages. In 2013, a proposal for a ropeway to the Mandir was made in order to enable a smoother 100-step journey till the Mandir for the elderly and the physically challenged. This proposal was rejected by the Charity commissioner’s officer a few times. It is now that the Mandir Trust has finally decided to make escalators till the Temple. Chaturshringi Mandir is not only one of the largest and well-know Mandir’s in India, but it is also one of the most sacred places visited by hundreds of devotees.
