About Bhimashankar:

Bhimashankar is one of the 12 Jyotirlings of India, a pilgrimage place approximately 3500 feet
high up in the hills. The area around Bhimashankar is covered with thick dense jungle. The Maharashtra Government has also declared it a Wildlife Sanctuary.The sanctuary is small (only about 100 sq. km’s), but it is home to a wide variety of animals Leopard, Sambar, Barking deer, Porcupines, Grey Junglefowls, Wild pig, Hanuman langur, Rhesus macaque and Flying Squirrel
etc. The sanctuary is famous as the home of a highly endangered subspecies of the Indian Giant Squirrel – Shekharu (Ratufaindicaelphistoni), which is also the state animal of Maharashtra.

Major Attractions :

a. Shiva Temple: The temple of Bhimashankar is around 1200 – 1400 years old and is built on the HemadPanthi style.

b.GuptBhimashankar : There is a water stream route going down from the left of the Ram temple. Taking that route, we enter a thick jungle. We reach a temple around 25 minutes through this route. A route going toward the waterfall, left of this temple, leads to the “water sculpted” “Shiva Linga” under this waterfall. This is called the GuptBhimashankar. There is a huge waterfall at this place.

c.Nagfuni:
This is the top most part of the peak.Its a must visit for people who want to see breath taking views.The peak also looks as the hood of the snake hence it is called Nagfani peak.
