Located at the south of Pune, the trip to Narayanpur is a pleasant one with the beautiful nature-bound roads. It known to be the village of Changdev Maharaj where Lord Dutta himself placed his ‘paduka’ before he left for Samadhi.
There is also the old temple of Narayaneshwar which has 3 sculptures. Close by, an old ‘audumbar’ tree is worshipped by all the pilgrims.
How to reach Narayanpur- either from Dive Ghat and Saswad or from Katraj Ghat and Pune-Satara road. The best season is definitely monsoon. Since the temple is located at the bottom on the Purandar Fort, the sight of both the temples at Narayanpur captures aptly the beauty of the Purandar Valley.
