My TripAdvisor Review No.74: Panch Ganga Temple, Mahabaleshwar.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 16 April 2015 NEW
The Panch Ganga Temple is the most popular temple located in the Temple Complex at Old Mahabaleshwar. Here you can see the 5 (panch) rivers (ganga) meet at one place and then flow out as a single stream through the mouth of a sculpted stone cow, or 'Gaumukh'. These 5 rivers are the Koyna, Krishna, Venna, Savitri and Gayatri. The water flow is perennial, and this is the miraculous secret of this temple.

The temple is dedicated to Lord Krishna and has a beautiful idol of him. Next to him there is a small idol of Lord Ganesh. After paying their respects to the deities all the devotees take a sip of the holy water flowing from the Gaumukh.

The water flowing out of the Gaumukh is one of the best I have ever tasted. It is pure, clean, cold and refreshing. Don't forget to bring an empty bottle or two to carry home this holy water for your near and dear ones.
