A very small place near Pune, Shivpur is known for its levitating stone. The place has a very mystical myth associated with it. It is believed that a famoussufi saint qamar Ali was known for his magical powers. The place where the shrine stands today was once a gymnasium and had 2 stones where wrestler used to practice.

It is said that the wrestlers made fun of the saint as he was not interested in wrestling. So the saint proclaimed that only the power of his name can lift the stones. He said that the bigger stone could be lifted by 11 fingers, while the
smaller can be lifted using only nine fingers, only if his name was called out loud. Since that day the stones can be raised in that manner only. The place is located at a distance of around 50 km from Pune and is well connected via buses and local transport.
