Location Details

Anjeneri is a beautiful village with lot of significance in history and mythology, being the birthplace of Lord ‘Hanuman’. Lord Hanuman was the son of ‘Pawan’ (the wind) and ‘Anjani’, and hence the fort is called as ‘Anjeneri ’. Anjeneri is one of the important forts in the ranges of Trimbakeshwar near Nashik. In 1672 A.D., the Marathas captured the Trimbak fort and during the same period, Anjeneri became a part of Swarajya. Later, after 1750 A.D., it was under the control of the Nizams. The spread of Anjeneri is quite huge with number of ways to climb to the top.

There are many well preserved ruins and temples near the village. The fort is behind the village and it is quite easy to climb. There is a small Hanuman temple at the top of this mountain. There are religious gatherings on a huge scale here during Hanuman Jayanti. There is a continuous fl ow of the devotees as well as the trekkers at this place. Two pinnacles called ‘Navara’ and ‘Navari’ can be seen from Anjeneri village. On the way from Anjeneri village to the fort some carvings can be seen in the caves near the steps. The carvings on the caves located near the fort are intriguing and eye catching. The inscriptions are believed to be from the Jain followers. The temple of Anjani Mata, a big marvelous temple devoted to the mother of Lord Hanuman, is another attraction here. The reverse water fall in the rainy seasons is a sheer visual treat.
