Overview

About Jivdhan:

Jivdhan fort stands tall at 3754 feet ASL. Located very close to Naneghat, It faces Ghatghar and was built to protect the ancient trade route of Naneghat. Giant squirrels can be spotted on this trek.
There are two main gates to reach the fort. The road leading to Naneghata is known as Kalyan Darwaza, while the road passing through Ghatghar village is known as Junnar Darwaza.

Jivdhan was captured by the British in 1818. They demolished the steps leading to the fort and the west gate was blocked. Even today, you can see traces of landmines as you climb the stairs. After climbing these rock cut steps, we come to a halt at a steep edge. The rock cut steps are broken here and one has to climb with the grooves on the rock. Jivdhan fort has a similar entrances to the ones we see at Chavand and Hadsar, indicating that maybe they were built during the same period.
