On the way from Anjaneri village to the fort some carvings can be seen in the caves near the steps. These caves have been carved out people from Jain religion. We reach the temple of ‘Anjani Mata’ within 10 minutes from the plateau. The temple is quite big. It is a proper place to accommodate on the fort. At a certain distance from this temple two different ways can be seen. The way to left hand side takes us directly to ‘Seeta cave’ within 10 minutes. This cave is made up of two rooms. 10 to 12 people can stay here comfortably. There are many carvings inside the cave. Another way takes us directly to citadel, where one more temple of ‘Anjani Mata’ can be seen. It takes 20 minutes to reach this temple. This temple is also quite big. The perimeter of the fort is very large.
Water Sources :
Drinking water is available from a tank near the temple throughout the year.
Special thing about structure/route :
108 Jain caves are found here belonging to 11th-12th century. The area around Anjaneri was once ruled for a brief period by Veersen Ahir (also spelled Abhir), who made it his capital.
