30 kms to the south from Pune is a
beautiful place called Baneshwar. It has
an old temple of Lord Shiva which was
built by Bajirao Peshwa-1. The idols of
Lord Vishnu, Goddess Laxmi and Lord
Mahadev in the temple are beautiful.
As the temple is in dense woods and it
seems like a Jungle, hence called
'Baneshwar'. There are five Shivlings.
It is also a famous picnic spot. There
is a beautiful garden, a small water
fall, hence a stream of water all these
make up Baneshwar a nice picnic spot.
