The Natural Potholes of Nighoj




Nighoj is an nondescript village in Shirur district (around 40kms from Ahmednagar and 80-90 kms from Pune, off Pune Nagar highway) .
But what makes this village unique are its natural deep gorge rock formations.
This place is also known locally as Ranjan Khalge . Its basalt rock riverbed formations are created around the Kukdi river that flows within the gorge.
The temple of Malganga located across the riverbed is also a popular religious place amongst the locals.
