About Shiv Samarth gad
Shiv = Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and Samarth = Shri Swami Samarth Maharaj Gad = Fort so this place is an example of the best architecture with the combination of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Life story and related statue. It fills like a real fort and all people related to the fort. Horses, Elephants, Horse riders, a village people and many more. Hight of the statue is as good as real-life characters.
We were visited twice. Once while my bike rides Sadguru darshan and other with my family. One of my friend told me about these places, As I am a follower of Shri Swami Samarth Maharaj so I include this place in my trip plan.
We reach this place at 5 pm it’s around 3 to 5 km from Mumbai goa highway as soon as we entered in Dervan village. We saw village was very clean and clear after riding half km more we reached Shiv Samarth gad. The overall area looks like a fort and many horses and soldiers statue available around the fort they look like a real Mavla (soldiers) statue were look, just like a real person.
In the entrance we saw a big wooden door just like a real fort door. To elephant statue standing in front in the front of the main door to welcome us. There is a small door which is part of the big main door.
