Height: 4511 feet ASL (Approx) Type: Hill Peak Duration: One Day
About Ajoba Hill Ajoba Hill stands at a height of 4511 ft in the Sahyadri range of the Western Ghats. The base village is Dehaene in the Shahapur Taluka. Local Folklore is that Goddess Sita stayed here during her exile after separation from Lord Rama. Here, we see Valmiki Ashram and the cave where Sita lived with her twins Luv and Kush (the locals insisted on calling them Luv and Ankush). Luv Kush use to address Saint Valmiki as Ajoba which means grandfather in Marathi and hence the hill got the name as Ajoba Hill. It has been said by the local community that the Samadhi of Valmiki increases in size after every few years.
