The Saptashrungi Devi temple is at Wani village some 60kms away from Nashik, on the Nashik-Saputara road. It is a temple where Goddess Bhagawati dwells. Saptashrungi Devi is one of the 51 Shakti Peeth of India and the prime Goddesses in Maharashtra.

The Goddess is called as Saptashrungi Devi since her temple is located on the seven mountain peaks. The idol of the Goddess is carved on a single rock face and is 8 feet tall. The Devi is saffron colored and has 18 arms with a weapon held in each. One of the hand of the Devi is placed on her left ear as if listening to the prayers of her devotees.

In front of the Saptashrungi Devi temple stands Markandeya Rishi’s hill where he had done tapa. As per mythology the Devi Mahatmaya or Durga Saptashati was composed by Sage Markandeya here . The Saptashrungi Devi temple is located in lush greenery and high mountains. The journey to the temple itself is very beautiful and breath taking. This place becomes more heavenly during the monsoon season when the clouds come down to kiss the mountain peaks.
