Korigad, Lonavala
2 Days1 Night

Event Overview

Korigad : Located in Pune District and is about 20 Kms away from Lonavla. One has to climb around 510 steps from Peth-Shahpur route. We can reach the top within 45-50 minutes from the base near Bhairavnath Temple. After entering through Ganesh Darwaja we can view some remnants of old buildings. There’s a temple dedicated to the patron Goddess, Korai Devi. The idol of Korai Devi is around 4 feet tall. There’s a “Deepmala” in fort of the Temple. Out of the 6 cannons, the biggest cannon named “Laxmi” is near the temple. One can see two ponds and two caves on the fort. From the fort one can view Tung, Tikona, Karnala, Prabalgad and Manikgad range.

Ghangad : A relatively small fort located along the old trade route Pali-Sarasgad-Sawashni Ghat-Ghangad-Tail Baila-Korigad. This fort was primarily to protect the goods brought via Kokan sea route to Deccan Plateau. On the fort there’s a temple dedicated Goddess Garjai. During Peshwe rule Ghangad was turned into a prison, housing political prisoners as well as social criminals. One can easily reach the top within 1 hour. Sarasgad, Sudhagad, Tail-Baila and Mulshi backwaters can be viewed from the top.
