“Saptashrungi Devi”
Reviewed 23 June 2012

Its one of the beautiful places you will love to visit again and again. Saptashrungi devi is my kul devati and visit this place every year in the month of June or July. Though u will be tired climbing 500 steps, it will be vanished once u look into eyes of that Goddess. Shez so pretty and adorable that words cant explain the pleasant feeling. Overall its a wonderful place and everyone who are planning to visit should must make it. Good luck and safe journey for your trip. Jai mata di :)

“good religious place”
Reviewed 21 April 2012

saptashrugi is one of the 51 shaktipeeth goddess temples in india and one of the 3 1/2 peeths of maharashtra. it is very important center. the devi is situated on a hill top with about 500 steps. but one need not worry about that as right from bottom to top all the way it is canopied so it is good to go anytime. we purposely avoided the chaitra navratra utsav as in navratras the temple is full of devotees and has full rush. so please visit anytime avoiding the navratra which come thrice in a year.there is a dharmashala for staying but we didnt see it but i guess it must be average .roads are preety good for going top ghat section . it is 10 kms drive to the saptashrungi gad.
we enjoyed the darshan and were satisfied .we could wait in the gabha gruh for almost 20 mins.
ample parking place is available with chappal stands.for old people who cannot climb the steps ,there is a facility for doli .

“Saptashrungi- The goddess of 7 hills”
Reviewed 15 July 2011

Whenever I move to any city I make sure that if there any “Shaktipeeth(a place for worshipp associated with goddess)” nearby. In june 2011 I got a chance to visit Nashik. After extensive research I came to know that approximate 60 km North of Nashik, there is a shaktipeeth of Devi named as “ Sapta-shrungi”.According to legend Once the demon Mahishasur acquired all the destructive powers and created havoc on the earth as well as heaven. Due to involvement of a boon it was not possible even for gods to kill him. As a result Lord Brahma.Vishnu and Mahesh combine their energies to manifest into goddess Amba. A fierce battle broke between Amba and Mahishasur.the demon transformed himself into a buffalo but finally Amba killed the demon at the place called Saptashrungi(means mountain of seven peaks). After that the goddess decided to resides on saptashrungi. At the foothills of saptashrungi hills there is idol of buffalo head signifies , the demon Mahishasur. The idol of goddess is more than 10 feet tall having 18 hands. The signification of 18 hands signifies the “Maha Shakti”, the divine power. The idol is fully covered with sindoor. My guide told me that there is a cave behind this idol where the goddess the present in the divine form that human eyes cant bear the glow.It is also believe that the sacred book of hindus “DeviMahatmayam” was written by Sage Markandey here. Since Sage Markandey is chiranjeevi(Long lived), still it is believe that he resides on the opposite hill where the goddess resides.I followed the route from Nashik and drive to the Dindori road (NH 17) . After crossing the Nanduri village the landscaping changes into very beautiful hilly area. The temple is situated in a village vani at the height of 1250m above sea level. There is a motorable road upto an altitude of 1140 m. From here there is a steep climb of 500 steps which could be cover easily in forty minutes. The offerings has to be purchases before the climb. It is custom to burn the camphor (in multiples of 9 ) at the huge entrance. It is believe that there are numerous kunds(holy ponds) in this area. Also this area is enriched with plants and herbs which has a lot of medicinal value..I began the journey about 10 am. I reached at the foothill around noon. it took almost 40 minutes to climb 500 steps.
