Bhavani Mata temple
The Bhavani Mata temple is one of the oldest temples in the city dedicated to the goddess. Historian Mandar Lawate says that the temple sees a lot of visitors during the Navratri festival.
“On Dusera, the goddess is taken in a Palkhi around the area.” He adds that the temple was built around 1780 by the shoppers of the area and the area was later named as Bhavani Peth due to the temple in the precinct. The statue of the goddess is made out of a beautiful black stone and there are old paintings as well.
“Every Tuesday and Friday, a lot of women from the city visit this temple. It is one of the most well-known and famous temples in the city. In this area there are a lot of markets which cater to businessmen who operate in the civil and allied industry.”
