Location Details

During the 11th century, a Jain King named Chamraj from the Southern dynasty carved these caves in this mountain. And hence, these caves are called Chamarlene. However, in the Nashik Gazetteer it is addressed as Chambharlene. At the foothills is a temple of a God from the Chambhar Sect and so is the name. This hill is also known as Gajpathi according to the Jain beliefs. It states that the brother of Lord Shri Krishna, Gajanth Kumar attained salvation at this hill. It is believed that seven Balbhadra (saints) of Jain Sect and their 8 crore Yadav King Followers got salvation here.
