Harishchandragad Fort (हरिश्चंद्रगड किल्ला) - Historical ...


Ways To Reach :

Harishchandragad lies where the boundaries of Thane, Pune & Ahmednagar districts converge. There are 4 – 5 known ways to this fort, the most usual being the following ones:
1) From Thane District :
One has to board the bus for Nagar from Kalyan & alight at ‘Khubi Phata’. From there we reach the village of Khireshwar by bus or private vehicle. This village is at 4km from the foothills of the fort.
Way from Khireshwar:
The way beside the caves, where water tanks are seen, proceeds further to Junnar Darwaaja (Entrance From Junnar). From here, the route goes straight to Tolar Khind. Walking a few minutes from Tolar Khind, we come across a rock-patch on which railings are fixed. After ascending the railings, we come to the plateau region on which less dense forests are seen. From here, we have to cross 7 hills & after a walk of 2-3 hours, we reach the temple of Harishchandreshwar, the temple of Lord Shiva.
Note: On this way, many arrows help in indicating the way.
Way from Belpada:
The third way is specially meant for hikers, which is via Sadhleghat. One should board the bus for Malshej Ghat & go to the village of Belpada. From here, the route goes through Sadhleghat. Here one has to climb a straight rock patch on which grips are provided. The temple is situated at a height of about 1km from Belpada. The total distance is about 19km.

2) From Ahmednagar District :
One has to board the bus for Nasik or Mumbai & alight at Ghoti village. From Ghoti, we have to board another bus to Sangamner via Malegaon & alight at Rajur village. From here, 2 ways diverge to the fort.
1) From Rajur, one has to board the bus or a private vehicle to the village of Pachanai. From here, the way is straight to the topmost point.
2) Recently, the way from Rajur to Tolar Khind has been made available. From Tolar Khind (Tolar valley), the temple is about 2-3 hours by walking.

पोहोचण्याच्या वाटा :

हरिश्चंद्रगड पूर्ण पाहवयाचा असल्यास दोन ते तीन दिवसांची सवड काढली पाहिजे. गडाचा घेरा फार मोठा असल्याने गडावर जाण्याच्या वाटाही अनेक आहेत.

१) खिरेश्वर गावातून :-
सर्वात प्रचलित असणारी वाट ही खिरेश्वर गावातून गडावर येते. या वाटेने येण्यासाठी पुण्याहून आळेफाटा मार्गे अथवा कल्याणहून मुरबाड-माळशेज घाट मार्गे खुबी फाट्यास उतरावे. खुबी फाट्यावरून धरणावरून चालत गेल्यावर, ५ कि.मी अंतरावर खिरेश्वर गाव लागते. हरिश्चंद्रगडावर जाताना खिरेश्वर गावातून अदमासे एक कि.मी अंतरावर खिरेश्वराचे प्राचीन शिवमंदिर आहे. हे मंदिर अकराव्या शतकातील यादवकालीन मंदिर आहे. मंदिराच्या बाहेरील सभामंडप छताला शिल्प पट्टीका बसवलेली आहे. आतील गाभार्‍याच्या दाराच्या चौकटीवर शेषशायी विष्णू व परिवाराचे अप्रतिम कोरीव शिल्प आहे. मूषकवाहन गणेशगणेशानी ,वृषभवाहक शीवपार्वती , हंसवाहन ब्रह्म सरस्वती, मयूरवाहन स्कंदषष्टी, नरवाहन कुबेरकुबेरी, मकरवाहन मकररति, अशा अनेक कोरीव प्रतिमा येथील पाषाणावर आढळतात. या मंदिराला ’नागेश्वराचे मंदिर’ असेही म्हणतात. या गावातून दोन वाटा गडावर जातात.
अ) एक वाट ही टोलार खिंडीतून गडावर सुमारे ३ तासात हरीश्चंद्रेश्वर मंदिरापर्यंत पोहचते. टोलार खिंडीत वाघाचे शिल्प पाहायला मिळते.
ब) दुसरी वाट ही राजदरवाजाची वाट आहे. ही वाट पूर्वी प्रचलित होती. आता मात्र वाटाड्याशिवाय या वाटेने गडावर जाऊ नये. या वाटेने आपण गडाच्या जुन्नर दरवाज्यापाशी पोहचतो. या मार्गाने जाताना गावातील विहिरीतून पाणी भरून घेणे आवश्यक आहे, कारण वाटेत कुठेच पाणी मिळत नाही.

२) नगर जिल्ह्यातून ( पाचनई मार्गे) :-
हरिश्चंद्रगडावर जाण्याची एक वाट ही नगर जिल्ह्यातून आहे. यासाठी मुंबई – नाशिक हमरस्त्यावरील घोटी या गावी उतरावे. तिथून संगमनेर मार्गावरील राजूर या गावी यावे. राजूरवरून गडावर दोन मार्गांनी चढाई करता येते. राजुर – पाचनई अशी बससेवा उपलब्ध आहे. हे अंतर सुमारे २९ कि.मी भरते. पाचनई हे गडाच्या पायथ्याचे गाव असून येथून गड गाठण्यास सुमारे ३ तास लागतात. वाट फारच सोपी आहे. पाचनई ते हरिश्चंद्रेश्वराचे मंदिर हे अंतर सुमारे ६ किमी आहे.

३) सावर्णे – बेलपाडा – साधले असा घाटमार्ग :-
गड सर करण्यासाठी सावर्णे – बेलपाडा – साधले असा घाटमार्ग आहे. मुंबई – माळशेज मार्गावर माळशेजघाट चालू होण्यापूर्वी सावर्णे गाव आहे. सावर्णे गावातून बेलपाडा गावात जाण्यासाठी फाटा फुटतो. या फाट्यावरून २ – ३ किमी गेल्यावर उजव्या हाताला जाणार्‍या रस्त्याने बेलपाडा गावात पोहोचता येते. मुंबई – माळशेज रस्त्यावरून बेलपाड्या पर्यंत पायी चालत जाण्यास दिड ते दोन तास लागतात. बेलपाडा गावातून साधले घाट मार्गे हरिश्चंद्रगडावर जाता येते. परंतु हा मार्ग फारच अवघड असल्याने प्रस्तरारोहणाचे तंत्र अवगत असलेल्यांनीच हा मार्ग अवलंबावा. येथून बेलपाडा या कोकणकड्याच्या पायथ्याच्या गावात यावे. येथून कड्यातून काढलेल्या साधले घाटाच्या सहाय्याने कोकणकड्याच्या पठारावर जाता येते. या वाटेने मंदिर गाठण्यास सुमारे १० ते १२ तास लागतात.

४) नळीची वाट :-
हरिश्चंद्रगडावर जाण्याची सर्वात कठीण वाट म्हणजे नळीची वाट आहे. नळीच्या वाटेने जाण्यासाठी बेलपाडा या कोकणकड्याच्या पायथ्याच्या गावात यावे. येथून हरिश्चंद्रगड व बाजूच्या डोंगराच्या मधल्या अरूंद घळीतून कोकणकड्याच्या पठारावर जाता येते. बेलपाडा गावात जाण्यासाठी, मुंबई – माळशेज मार्गावर माळशेजघाट चालू होण्यापूर्वी सावर्णे गावात उतरावे. सावर्णे गावातून बेलपाडा गावात जाण्यासाठी फाटा फुटतो. या फाट्यावरून २ – ३ किमी गेल्यावर उजव्या हाताला जाणार्‍या रस्त्याने बेलपाडा गावात पोहोचता येते. मुंबई – माळशेज रस्त्यावरून बेलपाड्या पर्यंत पायी चालत जाण्यास दिड ते दोन तास लागतात. बेलपाडा गावातून कोकणकड्याच्या दिशेने चालत जाऊन ओढा पार करावा लागतो. चार वेळा ओढा पार केल्यावर वाट कोकणकडा व बाजूचा डोंगर यांच्या मधल्या अरूंद घळीतून वर चढत जाते.ही वाट फारच अवघड असल्याने प्रस्तरारोहणाचे तंत्र अवगत असलेल्यांनीच हा मार्ग अवलंबावा. या मार्गाने कोकणकड्याच्या पठारावर जाण्यास सुमारे ८ ते १२ तास लागतात.
