In an utter disregard for the rule of law, the Pune Municipal Corporation has been constructing a grade separator at the Pataleshwar caves, near SG Barve Chowk.
Q. What is this Pataleshwar Caves and how is it any of my concern?
A. The Pataleshwar Cave Temple, also known as the Panchaleshvara or Bhamburde is a rock-cut excavation of the 8th century Rashtrakuta period. The temple, carved out of a single rock, is massive structure and bears resemblance with the rock-cut cave temples of Ellora.
