Chaturshringi Temple is a revered Hindu temple established on the slope of a hillock near Pune University. And devotees have been coming here for ages. The complex also has temples of Goddess Durga and Lord Ganesh.
The name is derived from the word “Chattu”, meaning Mountain with four peaks. Chaturshringi represents faith and power.
The temple is around 300 years old, and it has been renovated many times. Thousands of devotees have climbed the 100+ steps it takes to reach the temple shrine. The uphill task is made easier by sitting and resting spots on the way. So, you can take a break and marvel at the greenery around.
Chaturshringi Temple is the most crowded during the 9-day Navratri festival. The temple is lit up with lamps in a traditional Indian style. And a procession, with the Goddess resting in a silver chariot, is carried out. A fair is also held on the occasion.
A smaller version of the temple is also placed right at the entrance for those who can’t climb up the steps to the main temple.
