Shivthar Ghal (Marathi: शिवथर घळ), also known as Sundarmath (Marathi: सुंदरमठ), is a cave, about 34 km from Mahad, near Barasgaon. Samarth Ramdas dictated Dasbodh to Kalyanswami. Samarth Ramdas lived here for about 22 years. It is believed that this is where the first meeting between Shivaji and Samarth Ramdas took place.
The cave and surrounding area was renovated after Samarth Seva Mandal was formed in 1950. The campus includes dining hall and accommodation. Shivthar Ghal Sundarmath Seva Samiti organizes various programs at this location. It was rediscovered by Shankar Shrikrishna Deo
