Anjaneri

Anjaneri is one of the important fort in the mountain range of Nasik-Trimbakeshwar. Anjaneri is located 20 km away from Nasik by Trimbak Road. Anjaneri is birthplace of lord Hanuman. Anjaneri fort is named after lord Hanuman's mother Anjani. Hanuman spent his childhood and grown up on the same mountain. 108 Jain caves are found here.

Reaching Anjaneri :
The Nasik-Tryambakeshwar road is branched at a distance of 20 km from Nasik as ‘Anjaneri Phata’. On the way from Anjaneri village to the fort some carvings can be seen in the caves near the steps. These caves have been carved out people from Jain religion. We reach the temple of ‘Anjani Mata’ within 10 minutes from the plateau. The temple is quite big. It is a proper place to accommodate on the fort. At a certain distance from this temple two different ways can be seen. The way to left hand side takes us directly to ‘Seeta cave’ within 10 minutes. This cave is made up of two rooms. 10 to 12 people can stay here comfortably. There are many carvings inside the cave. Another way takes us directly to citadel, where one more temple of ‘Anjani Mata’ can be seen. It takes 20 minutes to reach this temple. This temple is also quite big. The perimeter of the fort is very large.
