Information
About Place

Naneghat is a mountain pass in the Western Ghats range near Junnar in Pune district of Maharashtra, India. The pass was extensively used as a trade route between Kalyan and Junnar. This was the most important trade route, as it connected harbour of Sopara and Kalyan directly to Junnar and Paithan. The name “Nane” means “coin” and “Ghat” means “pass”. The name is given because this path was used as a tollbooth to collect toll from traders crossing the hills.
This is a pass, which hence in history, enjoyed prime importance. At Naneghat, the inscriptions, the steps, the rock-cut rest houses, and the cisterns that date as far back as the 1st century B.C., prove that this route was frequently used.

This sheer cliff is a well-known landmark, very clearly visible from the Konkan. The wall of this pass jut out of the main range and hence offer a magnificent view of the great bend in the Sahyadri. To the north one can view Mt. Kalsubai, to the south Bhimashankar, to the northeast Harishchandragad and to the northwest Mahuli. To the southwest; behind Siddhagad, the level tops of Matheran can be seen. The great comb-like rock of Chanderi and pinnacles of Malang are also visible when there is no haze.

Chavand Fort - 3495 ft.

Chavand Fort is a hill fortress situated 15 km from the Junnar of Pune district in Maharashtra. The fort, which rises 3,495 ft above sea level, is located in the Sahyadri mountain range. The chief strength of Chavand Fort lies in its great natural defences. It is a conical shape and a prominent landmark. The fort has remnants of construction that are more than 800 years old.

There is a huge stone door called the Mahadarwaja which is still structurally intact. There is a Chamunda Devi Mandir on the fort along with a few remnants of a cannon as well. There are seven water tanks carved out of a single stone. The top of the fort offers splendid views of the neighbouring regions along with views of forts like Shivneri, Jivdhan and Hadsar. One can also see the seven tanks, the Kukdi river and the Manikdoh dam.

Kukdeshwar Temple

12th Century Shiva Temple

Kukdeshwar Mandir or Temple is located in the Pur village on the bank of Kukdi River at a distance of 15 Km from Junnar on its western side in the Pune district of Maharashtra. It has been built as per Hemadpanti architecture. The site of the temple looks amazingly beautiful and the Kukdi River on its northern side adds to its beauty.

It is a popular temple of Lord Shiva which is noted for its splendid carvings and sculptures on the inner and outer walls of the temple. It lies in close proximity of Chavand Fort, also known as Fort of Prasannagad at a distance of mere 3 Km. The roof of this temple is currently in a dilapidated state but renovation is being carried out.
