  • [Photo Feature]: Mumbai-trimbakeshwar-nashik-saptshringa gadh-saputara-mandavi-mumbai

    Another lazy weekend was about to come, No plans cooking up in the market, Boredom getting ready to takeover.
    So I was just checking out the Photos in the Google map (location wise) and found plenty of beautiful pictures of the places around Mumbai. There I found Saputara and Saptashringa gadh.
    Peeked all the images and then made a ride plan to visit Nashik,Trimbakeshwar,Saputara and Saptashringa Gadh.

    Total Km's - 870

    Route
    Day 1 - Mumbai - Trimbakeshwar - Nashik - Saptashringa gadh - Saputara
    Day 2 - Saputara - Mandavi - Mumbai

    DAY 1
    Friday night was little bit busy,partying,boozing and what not. And all this resulted in a Late Saturday morning start with a little bit Hangover. It was 8:00 am morning when I started rolling. Encountered dense traffic on Western Express highway. So wasted my valuable morning hours running in the heavy traffic. Finally reached NH3 and started ripping towards Nashik.On my way met one guy riding on FZ with loud speakers(Some cast iron exhaust),he was all geared up, but he was riding like crazy.
    Reached Trimbakeshwar at 11:30.
    About Trimbakeshwar
    Trimbakeshwar is around 30 Km's from Nashik near the mountain named Brahmagiri from which the river Godavari flows. The shrine at the temple is revered as one of the 12 Jyotirlinga shrines of Shiva.

    Some info from web
    Trimbakeshwar Temple is an ancient shrine, however the current structure is a result of the reconstruction efforts undertaken by the Peshwa Balaji Bajirao in mid 18th century. The temple is built of black stone in the Nagara style of architecture and is enclosed in a spacious courtyard. The sanctum internally a square and externally a stellar structure houses a small Shivalingam - Tryambaka. The sanctum is crowned with a graceful tower, embellished with a giant Amalaka and a golden kalasha. In front of the garbagriha and the antarala is a mandap with doors on all four sides. Three of these doorways are covered with porches and the openings of these porches are ornamented with pillars and arches. Curvilinear slabs rising in steps form roof of the mandapam. The entire structure is ornamented with sculptural work featuring running scrolls, floral designs, and figures of gods, yakshas, humans and animals.


    After roaming around the Kunda (small water resorvior,where people take bath and then go to visit the temple) I went to the main temple where I saw very-very-very long queue. And reaching inside the temple and having Darshan would have taken another 2 hours. So disappointed me took U-turn and started moving towards Nashik.

    Reached Nashik at 12:15..Stopped for a breakfast break. After having lovely breakfast moved ahead to the Sangam.Visited nearby temples and Ram Kund
