The temple houses a two level pond where water from 5 rivers accumulates through a lion hole. Architecture is mesmerising.

Panchganga means five river. It is believed that this is place fron where these river originated. One can see flow of water coming from underneath.

This is also a famous religious spot of Mahabaleshwar. The temple is dedicated to Lord Krishna as main deity. The Panchganga temple is just 100 feet away from Mahabaleshwar Temple. Do visit.

Even though the outside temperature was a sizzling 37 degrees, it was amazingly cool inside the temple. The Confluence of five rivers is the highlight of this place. The water is cold and very refreshing.The temple is very ancient dating back to the Mahabharata days. Worth visiting.

The temple is dedicated to Lord Krishna and has a lovely idol of him. The legend behind the temple is closely linked to Savitri's curse on the Trimurtis, Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva, who flow here as Koyna, Krishna and Venna rivers. People feel water in bottles and take home.

Out of them, springs of the first 5 flow continuously whereas the spring corresponding to Saraswati comes alive after every 60 years and the one corresponding to Bhagirathi comes... More

A very holy place as it is the origin of the 5 holy rivers - Gayathri, Savithri, Keyna, Venna & Krishna which flow through a beautiful carved Gaumukh which is situated at the top of the Krishna temple. It’s a very interesting place to visit as its historical and very ancient. Keep time in hand while visiting.
