BHULESHVAR TEMPLE NEAR PUNE : A MYSTICAL PLACE
As soon as you reach this place , it almost feels like a timeless Vortex , a place with no sence of time and space , as the name goes makes you forget your self or almost sedate…
As per the mythological story, Lord Shiva and Devi Parvati had a fight and angry Shiva came here to meditate. Then Devi Parvati, dressed as a tribal woman danced to fascinate Shiva and he got attracted to her beauty. Finally, they went to Kailash parbat (कैलाश पर्बत ) and got re-united. The place got its name from this story. “To sedate” means “bhul” in Marathi. As Shiva got attracted towards Paravati, hence Shiva got another name – Bhuleshwar. Hence the name of the temple.
Temple was built during the period of 1230 AD by Choula Rulers .
