About Mangi Tungi

Situated in Baglan tehsil, about 150 Kms from Nashik, Mangi Tungi is described as siddha kshetra which means it is a gateway to the state of enlightenment. The mythological tales assure those who are religiously inclined & who are seeking the path of enlightenment that more than 90 crore saints & celebrities such as Lord Rama & Lord Krishna had attained Moksha, the enlightenment at Mangi Tungi. Lord Krishna breathed his last & jettisoned his material body in the same area. It is further believed that his elder brother Balram, came out of the state of deep mourning after Lord Krishna's death & received paramadnyana, ultimate knowledge which further helped him attain enlightenment at Mangi Tungi only.

Apart from the religious importance of the place, Mangi Tungi boasts of a rich heritage value. Mangi & Tungi are actually the names of two peaks situated close to each other. Mangi peak is 4343 feet high while Tungi is 4366 feet high from the sea level. The 4500 steps which lead one to the foot of the peaks where several important monuments of immense historical & religious value stand amidst breath-taking majesty of mother nature also assure the visitors instant reduction of flab gathered around their tummies. Hundreds of caves with idols of deities & sages, carved from the mountain rock, in them are the main highlight of the place. Near Mangi peak there are several caves named after deities & sages who were liberated there such as Seeta , Mahaveer , Adinath , Shantinath , Parshwanath  & Ratnatraya. Their idols in yogic postures are found in the caves. In Balabhadra cave too there are several idols in similar positions. The tourists find many huge idols in the open also. Krishna Kunda is close to the Tungi peak where Lord Krishna was believed to have been cremated. Other caves house the idols of Lord Rama & his dear & near ones.

    Can I reach the two peaks by a vehicle?
    If a vehicle can go, is the road good enough for a passenger car? Or should I have an off-road vehicle?
    If a vehicle can not go, does it mean that I must take the 4500 steps?
