History of Naneghat Pass

During the reign of the Satavahana, the pass was extensively used as a trade route between Kalyan and Junnar. This was the most important trade route, as it connected harbor of Sopara (now Nalasopara) and Kalyan directly to Junnar and Paithan. Bor Ghat, Malshej Ghat, and Naneghat were the foremost road links for commuting coast to the Junnar plateau. The Satvaahans had made Naneghat their main route to Junnar. During their tenure, the most important way of commuting was Naneghat, which linked Kalyan & Sopara to Paithan. However, as time proceeded, it was destroyed by alien rulers and then paid no attention.
