Ajoba Gad -Fort Of Maharashtra

Fort Height: 4511
Type of fort: Giridurg 
Dongarang: Balaghat range
District: Thane 
Category: Medium

   Around the middle of Ratangad and Harishchandragad in the range of Balaghat, "Ajaparvata" alias "grandfather's hill" sounds like an ancient man. This grandfather's granddaughter, which is full of dense vegetation, has become a separate target for the climbers. This fort is a huge challenge for street lounges by a 3000 feet vertical wall.


There is a myth that the name of the fort was named granddaughter. Valmiki Rishi, sitting on this fort, wrote the book "Ramayana". At the same fort, Sitamai gave birth to Luv and Kush. Love and Kush Valmiki used to call Rishis as "grandfather", that is why the name of this fort is named after the grandfather. Such a story is told. There is also Valmiki Rishi's ashram and his samadhi on the fort.

Places to see:


Arriving from the Dehane (the first walk given below) to the Ashram of Valmiki, you should arrive in half an hour. Since there is no way to go to the head of the fort near Valmiki Rishi's ashram, we have to wait in the ashram. There is a hut to stay on the fort. There is a waterfall nearby. If there is a compulsory program, then we have to get the convenience of having dinner.If there is a climb to the waterfall near the ashram then after about one to one and a half hours there is a cave above. The Padukta Padukas are carved in the rock here. There is also a water tank on the left here. Iron shorts are also used to reach this cave. Return to the Ashram in this way. Thus, grandfather's fortresses from Mumbai come to be a natural destination.
