Ramshej literally means Lord Ram’s bedstead. While in exile, Lord Ram had made this place as his residence for some time, which gives the fort its name. During reign of Sambhaji, Aurangzeb came to Maharashtra with the motive to destroy Hindavi Swarajya. Nashik was under the command of Mughals. Mughals thought it would be the easiest to conquer it but proved to be a hard nut to crack.
When the fort was attacked by Mughal army, Sardar Suryaji Jedhe with Maratha army on the fort resisted these attacks for almost 6 years.
Height of the Fort is 3200 Ft. We can see cave, water tanks, temple, secret doorway, ruins of old consrtuction and also one can see Dehergad & Chambhar caves from top.
Pandavleni Caves : Pandu Leni, also known as Trirashmi Caves, are a group of 24 caves carved between the 3rd century BC and the 2nd century AD, representing the Hinayana Buddhist beliefs. The many inscriptions on the caves tell us that all the 3 kings, that ruled Nasik at that time.
