Location Details

It does not have a history of victory and defeat. Saptashrungigad is not a hill fort. But due to its historic religious background and the number of options it gives for climbing, it is a famous place for the trekkers. The Goddess at Saptashrungi is also known as Goddess of Vani, Vani being the base village. The steps that are built to reach the temple were built in 1768 A.D. to 1769 A.D. Amongst these, 472 steps were built by the leader of Shahu Maharaj’s army, Umabai Khanderao Dabhade in the year 1710 A.D. the festival of Navratri is celebrated with great enthusiasm here. Almost lakhs of devotees come to this place to pray to the Goddess.
User Experience

The temple of Goddess Saptashrungi on the fort has converted the complete village into a religious place. A temple amidst the rocks is simply beautiful. The East facing statue of the Goddess looks very peaceful. Markandya fort is right in the front, towards the East alongwith Rawla–Jawla, Dhodap and Kanhergad. Behind Saptashrungigad are Ahivant and Achala forts. And to the North are Mohandari, Premgiri and Chaulher forts. The top has a small temple of saint Parshuram. This entire region is always flooded with the devotees throughout the year. In the rains, one is reminded of the Himalayas seeing Saptashrungigad. It is carpeted with greenery in the heavy rains the clouds pour.
