Bhimashankar
1 Day1 Night

Event Overview

Siddhagad:
Here we can see few remnants of the fort that was battled over between British and Maratha army, a Lord Shiva Temple, few broken cannons, few water cisterns etc. From top of Siddhagad, one can see Karnala, Manikgad, Kothaligad, Bhimashankar, Gorakhgad and Machindragad. This place is also known in Indian Freedom movement as two freedom fighters (Bhai Kotwal and Hiraji Patil) were shot dead at this place by British on 2nd Jan 1943.

Bhimashankar:
is one of the 12 Jyotirlings of India, a pilgrimage place approximately 3500 feet high up in the hills. The area around Bhimashankar is covered with thick dense jungle. The Maharashtra Government has also declared it a Wildlife Sanctuary.The sanctuary is small (only about 100 sq. km’s), but it is home to a wide variety of animals Leopard, Sambar, Barking deer, Porcupines, Grey Junglefowls, Wild pig, Hanuman langur, Rhesus macaque and Flying Squirrel etc. The sanctuary is famous as the home of a highly endangered subspecies of the Indian Giant Squirrel – Shekharu (Ratufaindicaelphistoni), which is also the state animal of Maharashtra.

Lord Shiva Temple:
The temple of Bhimashankar is around 1200 – 1400 years old and is built on the HemadPanthi style. There are very beautiful sculptures and paintings on the roof and pillars of the temple. At the front of the temple hangs a huge metal bell cast in 1729. There is also a 15-20 feet high “Deepmala” or lamppost in the outer corridor of the temple. There is also an inscription on stone on this lamppost. It is to be noted that the original name of the river Chandrabhaga at Pandharpur is Bhima. This Bhima River originates at Bhimashankar.
