Brahmagiri Fort is located in Nashik District near Trimbakeshwar Temple.Godavari River originates on this hill and flows through this ranges. Trimbakeshwar Temple is a place of worship because it is one of the 12 Jyotilingas of Lord Shiva. There are 2 temples on this fort the place which is believed to be the origin point of Godavari river. From here, the river flows till Ganga dwar and then towards Kushavart teerth in Trimbakeshwar village. Brahmagiri literally means the hill of Lord Brahma. According to the mythology, sage Gautama and his wife Ahalya resided on this hill. A cow was unintentionally killed by Saint Gautama while trying to ward it off. To wash his sins, he worshipped Lord Shiva to bring river Ganga on earth from the heaven. Pleased with Sage Gautama's devotion, Lord Shiva requested Ganga river to flow down in the form of Godavari to make Sage Gautama pure. Hence, the river is also known as River Gautami. In the year 1908, Seth Lalchand of Karachi and Seth Ganeshdas built 500 stone steps at a cost of Rs. 40,000. This has facilitated easy access to Brahmagiri. One can see the water flows in three directions on the mountain. The one flowing towards east becomes Godavari River, one flowing towards the south is Vaitarna River and the one flowing towards the west is called the west-flowing Ganga and meets Godavari near Chakra Tirth. River Ahalya meets Godavari in front of the Trimbakeshwar temple. Sadyo-Jata, Vamdev, Tat-Purusha, Aghora and Ishana are the five peaks of Brahmagiri hills, which are considered as five mouths of the Lord Shiva.



Bhandardurg: In the year 1752 the warrior from peshwa’s Camp. Trimbak Suryaji Prabhu wrested the fort and established the peshwa’s regime there. It was in the year 1818 that British forces led by Mc Dowell wrested the fort and gained upper hand in the region as the forces won a set of 16 other forts in the vicinity.
