It's a small mahadev temple near old mahableshwar. Panchganga, Atibaleshwar and old Mahabaleshwar are near by each other. more »
Nice place but no lights inside temple, need to be taken care
Atibaleshwar temple is located among the group of temples around Mahabaleshwar temple. It's a very old temple. There is a mythological story behind Mahabaleshwar as well as Atibaleshwar temple. It is said that there were two demons namely Mahabal and Atibal. They were very wicked and robustious. To get rid of them lord Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh was prayed and Vishnu killed Atibaleshwar and Shiv could not killed Mahabal as he was having the boon of will death i.e"ikschhamrityu". So Brahma called Mahamaya, who allure him of love and enticed him to death. He agreed but prayed that Gods should stay at that place by their names so that those two demons become immortal. He died and thus Shiv stayed there in the form of Mahabaleshwar, Vishnu as Atibaleshwar and Brahma as Koteshwar. Name of the city is also said to be derived from Mahabal. It's a small temple. The height of doors are low and there is full darkness inside the temple. You have to keep your torch on to see. Temple management should lit a bulb here for the convenience of devotees.
