Naneghat, an ancient traderoute used to connect sea ports to Junnar, the busy market place at that time, there is a cave at the top end of Naneghat, this cave has stone carvings in Bramhi script carved in 8 century, to inform about the Yadnya performed by Queen Nagnika, the ghat also has a huge stone vessel (Ranjan) supposadly to collect tax from the traders who used Naneghat for their business,
To protect this route there is a string of forts, Jeevdhan being the first in that string.
Today visiting Jeevdhan and Naneghat give us a pleasure experience, one can see a huge range of Sanhyadris, at both the sides, also veiwing Khadaparshi or Vanarlingi from Jeevdhan is a thrilling experience, checking for trees full of fireflies colonies is an added advantage for this season
