raireshwar

Highlight

Lying southwest of Bhor-Pune, this is a prominent 8km long plateau. At the temple here, Shivaji Maharaj as teen-aged boy vowed to established “Swarajya”. It is a place of worship. There is a small village at the top.
There are many approaches to this plateau; from Rairi village, Korle village or A long zigzag ridge connects the plateau to Kenjalgad. The breath-taking views and the feeling of untouched nature is just mind-blowing. Ideal place for a one-day trek.

The places worth visiting on Raireshwar are Raireshwar Temple, Gomukh Lake, Nakhinda, Pandavleni. It is a very beautiful place to visit from June to February.

history

Raireshwar has a temple famous for its historical importance. The temple is very old and of the stone structure, but it was later reconstructed in the 18th century.
Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj took the oath of Hindavi Swarajya in this temple at the age of 16 in 1645 and then created history. It said that he had cut his little finger and taken the oath by dripping blood onto the Shivling. There is a large portrait of Shivaji Maharaj and his friends inside the temple. Thus, Raireshwar can be considered as an important place in Maratha history.

facts about fireflies

Fireflies are nocturnal insects. Despite the name, they aren’t flies, but rather a type of winged beetle. The light produced by fireflies is a chemical reaction used to signal members of the opposite gender.
Each firefly species has its own distinctive flash patterns. Sometimes, they even blink in unison! Flash patterns range from continuous glows or single flashes to series of multi-pulsed flashes. The light produced by the firefly is the most efficient light ever made.

Almost 100% of the energy in the chemical reaction is emitted as light; in comparison, an incandescent light bulb only emits 10% of its energy as light, the other 90% is lost as heat.

The glow of firefly larvae (glow worms) serves a different purpose by frightening away potential predators. Fireflies are reportedly extremely nasty tasting and some species may be poisonous.

Where can fireflies be found?

These insects live in a variety of warm environments, as well as in more temperate regions, and are a familiar sight on summer evenings. Fireflies love moisture and often live in humid regions of Asia and the Americas. In drier areas, they are found around wet or damp areas that retain moisture.
