Pandharpur is a Spiritual Temple in Maharashtra which has a huge following. During annual Pandharpur Yatra (Pilgrimage)  millions of people visit and worship Lord Vitthal and Rukmini. Well I visited this temple on 11th February 2017.

Ever felt electric in Pune? The excitement in the air, the kind of energy of ardent devotion and a jest of hunger to have fun was evident at Laxmi Road, Pune as the cutest Bappa of all times says goodbye in style.
If you are ever in Maharashtra during the Ganesh Festival you will notice Bappa lives in the heart of the state. This is the Ganesh Festival in Maharashtra, a widely celebrated extravaganza involving almost every household. 10 days of hopes, dreams, fun, social gatherings and laughter, Bappa is the most widely loved GODS from the Hindu Mythology.
Evident from the energy of the Dhol-Tasha Pathak and the fully packed crowded roads, as the air fills with the aroma of fresh flowers, colours and the beats every person present in the crowd is blessed. Every person has a smile on his face as their heart races to the beats. With the crowd of thousands, the city beamed with colours, with laughter and with joy. Even the Sun GOD could not dampen the spirit.

When I say unique I mean this Ganpati idol is one of the rare idol which face towards south direction. Also Ganpati’s trunk turns towards right rather than usual left which is considered as auspicious.

This was my first visit to Sheagaon and Anand Sagar, a truly pleasant experience. As my visit was just 1 week before Diwali i.e. on 26 October, 2013 there was not much rush and we were able to enjoy the tour. As I have been in Pune this involved a long journey but still 1 Day 2 night are sufficient for a quick dash to this place. In-spite of being Saturday the diwali festival seemed to keep people in their home. So for other days you can visit in some weekday as generally in weekend there is a huge rush present.

Ganpatipule small town in konkan amid lush green western ghats of India. I must say this happened to be one of the best short tours that I have ever taken till today. Based in Pune, Ganpatipule is about 380 km from Pune. I along with my friends while planning a road trip happened to discuss Ganpatipule as our destination which I will never regret to go to. With not much of any planning we booked a car(tavera) and set out on our journey to this beautiful destination.

If you are looking to move away from the hustle and bustle of city life and even don’t want to travel too far this might be the right place for you. Located on the bustling Senapati Bapat Road, amid huge IT companies and gigantic commercial complexes, is a serene, quiet and divine temple of Goddess Chaturshringi. Chaturshringi literally means four peaks.

If you can’t visit Lord Shri Venkateshwara Temple at Tirupati Devasthanam, then you must visit their replicas built very close to Pune, one at Ketkawale (Replica of Balaji Temple). This was my first outing in Pune for the season 2013.  The balaji temple near narayanpur is meant to be a replica of the Tirupati temple in all aspects. The priests there have come from Tirupati and every “sevai” done is similar to the one in tirupati.  We group of 4 started on our bike from Pune took the route from Katraj towards the destination.
