A beautiful temple placed on the hill top. The hall which is 50 feet wide and 60 feet long which is carved on a single rock with no pillar in between area. As the idol is facing back side, strong attempt was made to find out the front side but no success was achieved. As it is near from Pune, the devotees visit here every day in large amount. The pollution free environment impresses the visitors a lot.

Reaching here is very convenient as there is a direct S.T. bus to Junnar from Pune, and by railway till Talegaon and then a S.T. bus to Junnar.

On the Pune - Nasik high way, Chakan - Rajgurunagar - Mancher - then from Narayangaon via Junnar road you reach Lenyadri. This distance is 94 kms.
