User Experience

In the ghats of Chandwad is the temple of Goddess Renuka where one should definitely wait and pray. Continuing the journey from here, one sees the tall mountain range on the left and the farmlands on the right. Due to insufficient rains the area lacks the freshness that can be expected here. Starting from the base village, one has to walk around 4-5 kms along the pathway. In the front is seen Indrai with its wide spread. At the foothills is the roofless temple of Lord Hanuman. The cave seen here has a water tank in it. One has to proceed by the rock cut steps seen ahead. The first entrance gateway is seen ahead. At the left are Farsi stone inscriptions. After traversing some distance one reaches the top of the fort. There are 5 caves seen here out of which one was used to store water. To the west, is prominently visible the mountain range in which stand Koldher, Kanchana, Bandya, Ikhara, Dhodap, Rawla-Jawla and Markandya. If the skies are clear, the complete range can be beautifully viewed from this point. There is a temple of Lord Shankar carved out of the rock. Coming ahead are intricately carved caves like the Buddhist viharas.

Do Not Miss
