SaptaShrungi Devi Temple

>> Saturday, January 10, 2009

The Saptashrungi Devi temple is located at Vani near Nashik in Maharashtra. Its about 60 Kms from Nasik. This temple is one among the 51 Shakti peethas located on the Indian subcontinent.

The temple, which sort of sticks to the cliff, is 1230 meters above sea level. There is an old path with steps cut out of the mountain, which starts right at the foothills, at Vani and goes all the way to the mountain. However, now, a motorable road has been built, which goes up to an altitude of 1150 meters. From this place one has to climb around 500 steps to reach the shrine, which only takes about forty five minutes.

The road from the foothill to the top is very scenic. You almost travel in the clouds. It has some dangerous turns as well and one has to be very careful while driving there.

On the road from Nasik to Vani, you can find the Ojharkhed dam. This is one place which will make you visit again and again. Its very famous for its fishes. I have visited this place a lot of times just for enjoying the mouth watering fishes.

Its very crowded during the month of October/November when people of India celebrate 'Navratri' festival. Try to see this place when you are visiting Mumbai. Its about 230 Kms from Mumbai by road.
