Beautiful and divine

This is a half day getaway from Pune. You can go by your own vehicle or can also take a bus from Swargate Bus Depot.Located on the top of a hill, this temple provides a serene view for your eyes. The temple is very neat and clean and is well maintained. The construction is just a replica of the original Tirupati temple.Photography enthusiasts will be disappointed as their gadgets would be deposited before entering the temple.

Beautiful temple in an excellent location

Those who cannot make to Tirupati best alternate place. Excellent arrangements for visitors. Avoid visiting during hot time since shoes are to be removed at a distance which is sometimes unbearable to cover on very hot tiles.

Divine place

This famous Balaji Temple is about 30 mts drive from Pune city on the Bangalore highway. Temple is constructed similar to the Balaji Temple in Tirupati. Very neat and clean environment. Mobiles are not allowed inside. Safe lockers are available to keep the same. You get Laddu as Prasad. Calm and Serene place. Must visit place if you are not able to visit Tirupati Balaji.

Replica of Tirupati

Perfect place to be if you wanna visit Tirupati. The architecture is amazing, beautifully done. It is approx. 50 km from Pune. Short getaway near Pune. The temple is very spacious, generally lot of rush is there during holidays.

Spiritual journey in the outskirts of city

Peaceful and serene

The drive to the temple from Pune is good and a must visit place if you are in Pune. The temple is grand, peaceful and serene amongst scenic hills. The queues leading to darshan are well managed.

Amazing construction, located among mountains

The temple being an almost exact replica of Tirupati temple is a worth a visit for Tirumala devotees at Pune. It is situated among mountains and natural landscape. Truly amazing and tributes and hats off to the one who built it it is mainly constructed in Dravidian style. Free from mischief mongers around temple. My suggestion is that you should visit with your family once.

Beautiful temple, the lunch is also provided

Visited with family, excellent, serene and peaceful temple. Avoid Sundays/holidays due to rush. Prasad (Meals) are available during lunch time but the queue is quite long. Its is 40 kms from Pune on the Bangalore highway. Travel time is 1hr 25 mins from Pune camp.

Excellent surrounding, food is served

A beautiful, neat temple replica of Tirupati, well maintained, with good landscape and excellent surroundings, approximately around 30kms from city. Each one will be given a laddu as prasadam, I have seen food served free there, who ever goes they give a token for free food.
