The Mahabaleshwar Temple is a famous Hindu temple devoted to lord Shiva. The temples is divided into two sectors a central hall and a god chamber,A lingam(black stone)is workshiped in the temple which is regarded as the sign of the Divinity.

During season time its too crowded due to which we had to walk leaving aside the cab we had done. nice place to visit. Locals say that the temple is over 900 years old. If that is true, you’d wonder how they managed to set up something like a temple so far away from civilization. It is a nice little temple and could be visited if you have the time and interest to see local religious places.
