Located in the Sahyadri Ranges this place is blessed with numerous waterfalls, valleys and lakes. This area is full with rural villages where you may get a look into the lives of the locals and engage with the tribes who live in the area. Jawhar has a strong cultural ethos as well as a long history dating back to the 14th century. Because of its proximity to Mumbai, it might be a great day trip destination.
Dabhosa Waterfall: One of the beautiful waterfalls in Jawhar, on the Lendi River, is Dabhosa. It is well-known and well positioned to relieve one's body and mind with its scenic and soothing beauty. This waterfall is particularly appealing due to the flowing water tumbling down the granite rock face. This natural and unpolluted site is surrounded by deep trees and offers a tranquil setting for anyone seeking isolation.
Hiradpada Waterfall: Hiradpada waterfall is a popular tourist destination in Jawhar because it is unspoiled and relatively untapped. It is nestled among beautiful foliage. The white rushing water and roaring cascade are both breathtaking and eye-catching. A lovely vista is created by the waterfall's backdrop of mountainous wooded mountains.
Khad-Khad Dam: The dam at Khad-Khad has given the tourist industry a huge boost. The gorgeous surroundings of the previously undiscovered terrain will entice adventure-seeking tourists or provide a tranquil natural atmosphere to relax a fatigued mind and body.
Shirpamal: The Shirpamal, a hilltop structure, is supposed to have been constructed three centuries ago when Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj opted to camp here enroute to Surat. It is a well-known location where the first Vikramshah, the King of Jawhar, greeted Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and placed a feather in his crown. It is situated at the apex of the highest hill in order to keep an eye on enemy movements and to have a panoramic view of the entire valley, which is brimming with natural beauty. Reaching the Shirpamal is a fascinating and rewarding event in and of itself. Shirpamal's gorgeous and captivating setting attracts visitors from all over the world.
Jaivilas Palace: The beautiful Jai Vilas palace, also known as Raj Bari, was the Mukne family's residential palace. Raja Yashwant Rao Mukne constructed the palace. Syinite was imported from Kalidhond, 5 kilometers away, for this project. The palace is a work of art made entirely of pink stone. Surrounded by thick forest and cashew orchards, the Jai Vilas palace was built on the summit of the hill. The path from the main entrance to the palace is flanked on both sides by dense bushes. The palace's domes are extremely gorgeous, and the palace itself is situated in the midst of lush green countryside, evoking the culture and way of life of the previous Mukne family's tribal kings.
Beautiful portraits of the Mukne tribe can be found in the Palace. There is a children's nursery, a drawing room, antique furniture, stuffed animals in the bedrooms, and a huge lobby. The palace has over 50 rooms in all. This popular tourist destination in Jawhar is well-known for filming.
The Jaivilas Palace is a must-see for anyone interested in getting a glimpse into the lives of royalty in the past.
Hanuman Point: Hanuman Point gets its name from an ancient Hanuman mandir of considerable religious significance. The breathtaking vista of Jaivilas Palace is another attraction for visitors. Katya Maruti Mandir is the name given to the Maruti or Hanuman mandir. The mediaeval fort of Shahapur Maholi can be seen from this vantage point during the day. Devkobacha Kada, a lovely green 500-foot-deep valley, never fails to draw travelers’ attention.
Sunset Point: The Sunset Point is a beautiful natural environment that serves as the main attraction of Jawahar’s hill town. This site is known for its stunning surroundings and mesmerizing sunset view, making it a haven for nature enthusiasts. Because the valley near Sunset Point has a bow-like shape, it was previously known as Dhanukamal.
