Brahmagiri (Trimbakgad) :
Brahmagiri ( or hill (“giri”) of Lord Brahma) is known for its mythological associations. The hill is mentioned in several ancient scriptures and is believed to be a huge form of Lord Shiva. The Trimbakeshwar temple in Brahmagiri shelters one of the 12 Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva and is considered a holy place by pilgrims and devotees. The hill is now accessible through stone steps built during the 20th century. The Godavari, the second longest river in India after the river Ganges, has its source at Trimbakeshwar.
Bhandar Durg :
This is the north-most part of Trimbakgad or Brahmagiri hill and has a rich history behind it. In the year 1752 Trimbak Suryaji Prabhu, the warrior from Peshwa’s camp, wrested the fort and established the Peshwa’s regime there. It was in the year 1818 that the British forces led by Mc Dowell gained supremacy in the region.
