  • Tungareshwar is one of the Fort of Maharashtra. The Shiva Temple is historical. It is better to trek the way rather bringing vehicle to the temple. Its a forest area and road are not paved but muddy. Its a great trek if we go further than the temple. The place is good for birders and trekkers. Lord Shiva temple is calm and cool except during festival season. Few stalls to serve you snacks and tea. Small part for kids to play. Its a great place for worship as well as for picnic.
  • Temple is inside 2 km inside the forest. You will get many people there. You can get shops also for food and worship things. Go in Rainey days you can see more beautiful on that season.
