Photo walk up Parvati Hill

This is a popular walk in the mornings for Punites.  I decided to go up shooting black and white on a foggy December morning.

The hill has 103 steps.

I am blocked by dancing children at step 27

School children on their way down.

Parvati Hill has 5 temples on top of it.

The temple is the oldest heritage structure in Pune and was built in the Peshwa Dynasty rule.

The main temple, Devdeveshwara was completed under Nanasaheb Peshwa, in 1749.

Devdeveshwara temple is made of blackstone

Parvati Hill raises to a height of 2100 feet above sea level.

There is a Peshwar museum on top of Parvati Hill.

Parvati Hill gives you an amazing 360 degree view of Pune city.
