Tankai fort is a hill, part of the Satmala Range in Nashik district of Maharashtra.
The fort rises about 900 feet above the plain and 3200 feet above the sea. Don’t worry, it’s not too strenuous, and it’s easy to ascend nowadays. Most tourists ascend from the Kusur village to the south from the saddle between both hills.
But wait, before you start your ascent, make sure to check out the Tankai Jain Cave Temples, which are located at the base of Tankai. These temples are several hundred years old and have some beautiful carvings. You’ll also find statues of the Jain Tirthankar Shantinath and carvings of Yakshas, Parshwanath, and Jay Vijay.
As you make your way up, you’ll see a temple dedicated to the sage Agastya, which is the only one dedicated to the sage in the country. And let’s not forget about the memorial tomb of the Sage, which is now a contemporary Ram Mandir. You’ll also get to see Kashi Lake, the remnants of a Wada, the residential place of the royals, and the Mothe Baba Dargah.
