Mahabaleshwar Temple - The present temple of Mahabaleshwar is
surrounded by a stonewall about five feet
high. The main temple is divided into
two apartments, the inner room or God’s
chamber and the outer room or central
hall. Its structure has the style of southern
Indian temples. This temple is dedicated
to Lord Shiva and ling worship is performed
here. Legends have it that there is a
live spring below the rock which makes
all the hollows full with water all year

the rivers which originate in the surrounding
Shri Ram Mandir - Shri Ram Temple constructed by the Late

Kate's Point - This point gives a commanding view of
the Krishna Valley. Near Kate's point
is the Echo Point, which, true to its
name, echoes the words of the speaker.
Lodwick Point is named after a General who reached this
point in 1824. He was the first European
to set foot on the Mahabaleshwar hills.
A monument at the top of the projection
has been erected in his memory. Beyond
Lodwick Point is the extreme end of the
mountain range known as Elephant's Head.
It is only 12 feet to the Koyna Valley
below. From Lodwick's point, the overhanging
cliff looks like an elephant's head and
trunk, and hence the name.
