Why to visit Parvati Hill Temple

The idols of Lord Ganesha, Goddess Parvati, Lord Vishnu, Lord Karthikeya, and Devateshwar are housed in the temple, which sits at the summit of the hill. It is also said to have served as the Peshwa kings' sole place of worship in earlier times.

Simply ascending 103 steps marked by specialised Maratha-style stone architecture works will get one to the top of the hill. The hillock also houses the Parvati Museum, which is home to antiquated books, valuable weapons, and unique coins.

One of the city's oldest historical buildings, the Parvati Hill Temple Complex continues to serve as a beautiful yet subdued reminder of the Peshwas' dominance over the area.

History of the Parvati Temple:

According to history, Kashibai, the mother of Nanasaheb Peshwa, a Peshwa monarch, had a problem with her legs. She paid a visit to this location known for its enchanted healing properties and promised to erect a shrine once she was well. In order to grant his mother's wish, Nanasaheb Peshwa constructed the main temple in the 1740s once she began to feel better.
