Dear Friends we invite you all to MumbaiRangers Trek to Naneghat and Flying Fox on batch 1:28 Nov 2015 batch 2:29 Nov 2015   Naneghat Flying Fox  Batch 1 28 November 2015  Batch 2 29 November 2015   Base Village – GhatgharRange – JunnarTaluka – JunnarDistrict – Pune Naneghat  Heights       – 2750 fts Naneghat  Flying Fox - 700 fts Grade Easy   History  Naneghat is a mountain pass in the Western Ghats range near Junnar in Pune district of Maharashtra, India. During the reign of the Satavahana  (200 BCE–190 CE), the pass was extensively used as a trade route between Kalyan and Junnar. Literally, 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. The inscriptions in the caves indicate that they are the work of Satavahana rulers who came into prominence after the fall of theMauryan empire. [2] It is believed that a powerful woman ruler Naganika, the wife of Satakarni (180–170 BCE) of the Satavahana family commissioned the cave, the statues  and the inscriptions. Bhrahami inscriptions in the cave mention her and her family members. Though the statues adorning the sides of the rectangular cave  are now gone, the inscriptions still record some of the achievements of the dynasty. The Naneghat records have proved very important in establishing the  history of the region. Vedic Gods like Yama (Hinduism) Indra, Chandra and Surya are mentioned here. The mention of Samkarsana and Vasudeva indicate the  prevalence of Bhagavata form of Hinduism in the Satavahana dynasty. There is a big stone cut "Pot" ment for collection of the toll from the traders.  There are many rock cut water cisterns along the pass. The entire path of the Nane Ghat has stone pavement from top of the hill to the bottom.  The inscriptions are preserved by the Archaeological Survey of India. Very beautiful temple of lord Ganesha in cave is found here.   Route From Mumbai Mumbai – Bhiwandi Bypass – Kalyan... Read more
