More about the destination:
This trek is basically a PASS, in ancient times this was the nearest route to descend down to KONKAN (Kalyan port) from PLATEAU(Deccan),this pass was mainly used by traders who used to frequent this rout. Near the top one beautiful cave is situated with few water cisterns,there is also a huge pot located on top plateau just at the entrance of the way down to caves, it is said that it used to be a JAKAT NAKA( Toll), and every trader was supposed to put SWARNA MOHOR( Gold coin) in the pot to gain access to the road for descending down. The inscriptions in the caves indicate that they are the work of Satavahana rulers who came into prominence after the fall of the Mauryan empire. 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. 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.
