At the ancient temple of Nira Narsingpur, dedicated to Lord Narsinha, it is believed that all your wishes are fulfilled. The area is shaped like a lion’s nose, and hence its name has been derived from it. Situated in the Indapur taluka of Pune district, this temple, built in the 1500s, has an impressive structure and stunning carvings on stone as well as wood. A magnificent brass door grants entry to the inner sanctum. The confluence of the rivers Nira and Bhima also takes place here. There are several small temples in and around the main temple, and the presiing deity is the Kuldaiwat (family deity) for a large number of Marathi families. Maharshi Vyas, said to be the author of the epic Mahabharata, is believed to have stayed here for a little while as well.
