about gangdwar

This is where the Godavari makes an appearance for the first time after it emerges from its source atop the Brahmagiri Hill. Located halfway up the hill, albeit on a different route, it’s an easy ascent of 750 concrete steps. The river flows out as a tiny spring from the mouth of the holy Nandi. There is a temple dedicated to the River Ganga atop the hill. Nearby is the Kolam- bika Devi shrine, and the 108 miniature Shivalings that Rishi Gautama worshipped, which are in the open.
A few steps further down is the Gorakhnath Gufa (cave), where the Sage Gorakhnath performed penance. Descending further, the Godavari flows from the roots of an audumbar (fig) tree. This is known as Ram-Lakshman Tirtha. Lord Ram is said to have performed the shraadh ceremony for his father, King Dasharath. There is a small, pretty Ram Mandir here, which one Gopalrao Ghanekar built at a cost of Rs 25,000 in 1857. Those who do not wish to climb the 750 steps can reach the Ram-Lakshman Tirtha by climbing about 200 steps instead.
