All about the Shingroba Temple, Lonavala

Shingroba Temple, constructed in the 19th century, graces the picturesque hill station of Lonavala in Maharashtra. The temple derives its name from an old shepherd known as ‘Shingroba.’

In 1853, during the expansion of the Mumbai Thane Railway to Pune, the British encountered difficulties in navigating their way to Lonavala. After reaching the Khandala Ghat, their progress was halted.

It was then that they encountered Shingroba, who guided them towards Lonavala.

Upon being asked by a British officer for a wish, Shingroba expressed his desire to liberate his homeland and its people. Tragically, the officer responded by fatally shooting Shingroba.

Since that fateful incident, Shingroba has been revered by the locals as a symbol of resistance and patriotism. In honour of his sacrifice, a temple was erected in his memory, symbolising his legacy as a freedom fighter.

As you start your journey to Shingroba Temple, you are welcomed by the calming sounds of nature and the pleasant chirping of birds.

Stepping into the temple premises, you are greeted by the intricate architecture and timeless beauty of the temple's structure. Inside the temple, the air is filled with the fragrance of incense sticks and chanting, creating a peaceful atmosphere for meditation and introspection.

Many vehicles pause near the Shingroba temple, offering prayers before continuing their journey.
