Bhandara Dongar Dehu

I visited Bhandara hill in Monsoon in mid-June. I had started my journey from Pune to Bhandara Dongar Dehu. The journey took me 1.30 hour. After reaching Talegaon thereafter by crossing Indrayani River the Bhandara hill entry gate was just 1 km away. This gate represents Bhandara dongar as it was written over there.

From this point the elevation started. The road was of good quality and broad.  The ride from the start till the peak was very good, and we enjoyed it a lot. It’s around 2 km journey from the base.

We went by car and before reaching the top we have noticed one sunset point also.  There is one barrier and car needs to park before this barrier. Car parking to the main temple distance is around 200 meters.
