The next day visitation of my journey Ekvira temple is a really good place, one can view a very beautiful scenery from the mountain above the temple. There is a way to reach there not very tough but not easy too have to be little careful rest things were and good enough to enjoy.

Ekvira temple is one of the oldest temple in lonavala. its worth visiting once. It is situated on the top of the mountain so we have to climb some steps to reach the temple. Also superb valley view from the place.

You can complete a 2 in 1 visit. There is first a Road Entry Ticket, then parking and then a separate ticket for visiting Karla caves, which is not worth as 70% is closed. The steps upward is populated with vendors selling flowers, sweets, chaas

Road up to foot hill very very narrow and is OK, however driving uphill is quite thrilling due steep Ghat (few) and vehicle coming from up hill. Limited Parking facility is available at Uphill. Yu will... More

Its just another temple, the only difference is that it is on a hill...right adjacent to the Karla caves. The religious-minded may not agree, but I feel that this relatively modern structure does not fit next to the ancient caves...
