Apart from being a humble abode for the nature lovers, ‘Mahabaleshwar’ which literally means God of great powers, is mainly a place of religious significance. Bhushan Mahamuni; also known as Shree Kshetra Mahabaleshwar, is one of the pilgrims that adorns this place and has great importance. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva, situated on the northern side of Mahabaleshwar, that is the base to Swayambhu Shivalinga which is the meeting place of Krishna, Koyna, Venna, Gayatri and Savitri. The beautiful golden idol of Lord Shiva inside the temple, is truly mesmerising. Bhushan Mahamuni is a blissful place for the peace seekers as well as the nature lovers.
Near the Bhushan Mahamuni, there are two more temples; Aati Baleshwar temple and Panchganga temple that can be included as a combined visit to this place.

Bhushan Mahamuni is open to visitors, all days of the year. But to admire the beauty of the place along, June - January is the best months to visit here.
