Naneghat, also referred to as Nanaghat or Nana Ghat, is a mountain pass in the Western Ghats range between the Konkan coast and the ancient town of Junnar in the Deccan plateau. While going through Malshej Ghat, we can easily get a glimpse of Naneghat after Murbad. Nane means "coin" and ghat means "pass". This path was used as a tollbooth to collect tolls from traders crossing the hills. This is an ideal photography and star gazing destination now. The caves here have inscriptions about the Satavahana ruler Satakarni. These inscriptions are proved to be dating back somewhere between 60 and 70 BC. The Brahmi inscriptions at the caves also mention the name of Naganika, the wife of Satakarni's who was believed to commission the caves. This pass was extensively used as a trade route between Kalyan and Junnar. This was the most important trade route, as it connected the 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.
