Nageshwar mandir at Ambawade is an ancient Shiva temple which is visited by thousands of devotees every year. Legend has it that this temple
was built by the Pandavas and sage Namdeo had practiced great penances to Lord Shiva here. Shiva temples usually face east but it is believed
that Shiva himself turned the temple around so that he could see Namdeo, hence the temple faces west. The Panchakund water tank has a
perennial water supply.
