Bhimsagiri (Gadhinglaj T.), a group of two or
three temples lies about a thousand yards west of Samangad. The
chief is Bhim's temple which has a stone-built gabhra or the
inner hall shrine with a quadrangular vestibule or mandap. It
has a room for about 300 people and is 100' x 84' x 14' high. In the
shrine is a stone image of Maruti. Close to the temple is an old
underground excavation 75' x 40' x 15' deep, and about 200 yards
east of the temple is a grove of mango and other trees. At this
temple, from the dark 13th of Magh or January-February to the
bright 5th of Phalgun or February-March a yearly fair is held
attended by about 10,000 people. The fair is said to have been
started by Baburav Gadnis a former commandant of the Samangad fort.
Near Bhim's temple stands the temple of Chaloba where in Magh
or January-February a yearly fair is held attended by about 3,000
people who generally offer the deity 400 to 500 sheep.
