This cool fort is up in the Igatpuri area of Nashik, Maharashtra. It sits on a hill, kind of like a big rock, and was built to keep an eye on the old trade route connecting Konkan to Nashik. Some say it's been around since the 10th century, and you can spot some old caves nearby. The Mughals took over in 1636, and the British captured it in 1818. The entrance gate is carved from a massive rock, and there's even a little temple on top dedicated to Bhavani Mata!
Another gem in Nashik, Maharashtra, this triangular prism of a fort stands tall at 3676 feet. It dates back to the Seuna (Yadava) dynasty days and was used by Shivaji and others. Mughals took it in 1636, and the British got hold of it in 1818. But hey, the coolest part is the steep and narrow rock-cut steps. Don't forget to check out the storage house, water cisterns, and a cave up top!
If you're up for an adventure, head to the highest peak in the Sahyadri Ranges, the mighty Kalsubai, aka the Everest of Maharashtra! It's in Ahmednagar district, Maharashtra, and boasts an elevation of 5400 feet. The trek is no joke, taking 3 to 4 hours from Bari village to the summit. But the view is totally worth it! Oh, and there's a sweet little temple dedicated to Kalsubai herself up there, plus a flag waving high up on a metal ladder.
This ancient temple town in Nashik, Maharashtra, is a super special place for Lord Shiva devotees. It's one of those twelve Jyotirlingas, super sacred to Hindus. And guess what? It's where the Godavari River starts, so it's like extra holy! The temple was built in the 18th century by Peshwa Balaji Baji Rao, and it's got this unique linga with three faces, representing Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. Pilgrims flock here, especially during the Kumbh Mela.
