I live in Nashik, the city of Pilgrimage where we have Lordess Saptashrungi on Saptashrungi fort, situated 60 kilometers form Nashik. The temple is also known popularly as one of the “three and half Shakti Peethas” of Maharashtra. Saptashrungi Nivasini dwells within the seven mountain peaks. Sapta means seven and shrung means peaks. The forests in the hills are reported to have medicinal herbs.
