This is the same temple where many scenes of Swades were shot. It’s an old village named Manavli, 3 km from Wai.

  1. Very Nice pics and blog. Me and my hubby are also planning to visit Mahabaleswar on our Kinetic Honda from Pune. It’s something we would like to explore ourself on two wheelers. Was wondering if the ghat roads were safe to ride as I will be riding in parts. Did you guys used to switch off the engine downhill on your way back? Need some tips, Regards, Kusum
