Location Details

Ajoba is not a fort, but a place having historic and religious importance. Sita gave birth to her sons Luv and Kush here, when she was staying in Valmiki Rishi’s ashram. Luv and Kush learned the art of using bow and arrow under Valmiki Rishi’s guidance.
User Experience

A trek to Ajoba means a remarkably wonderful experience. One should proceed towards the East from Dehne village which is at the foothills. As one goes ahead, the route takes you through a thick dense canopy of trees which are pleasing in all the weather conditions. In an hour and a half, one reaches Valmik Rishi’s Ashram which houses his Samadhi. It also has a Shiv Temple. A small water stream of pure water passes from through the dense foliage, crossing which, one can reach the Luv-Kush caves. The atmosphere here is completely mesmeric. In the cave there are the carved footprints of Luv and Kush. There is a single storey dharmashala (dormitory) constructed out of wood. A stay here gives great pleasure. The pinnacle at the top is called Sita’s cradle (Sitecha Palana in marathi). Generally people prefer this place as one-day trek, especially in rainy season. A beautiful waterfall is formed in monsoon. After reaching the tip of the hillock, the horizon of ones happiness reaches far beyond the dreams.
