Visited Veer Savarkar Smarak ( Monument) with Sadhana and Kamalmausi. It is located in Veer Savarkar”s home town Bhagur BK which is about 25 km from Nashik. Bhagur (the name of the village after Bhrugu Rishi’s (Sage) name).

The monument, which is also known as Savarkar Wada, was managed by Archaeological Department of India for many years. Now, Mr. Ranjit Savarkar is taking care of the monument. The monument will have a Savarkar museum in future. The three floor building has an underground secret way, which goes from the house to the river. You can see the age old system of granary surrounded by walls and a small opening from lower floor.in the house. If seen from the top, it would look like a lift shaft section. 

Swatantryaveer Vinayak Damodar Savarkar  (28 May 1883 – 26 February 1966) was an renown Indian politician, activist, and writer. He had taken oath of armed Revolution at the age of 14 is this place, his home in Bhagur. The idol of the goddess in front of whom, he had taken the oath was in his home for generations.

Also visited Sarvathirth, Taked BK Dist. Nashik. Jatayu who was wounded by Ravan who died after informing Lord Rama that Sita was taken away by Ravana. Lord Rama sensed the end result as soon as he saw wounded Jatayu lying on the ground, so he hit an arrow at the ground to call all 7 sacred rivers to form Sarvateertha so that the bird king gets moksha. After hitting the arrow, waters from the six rivers arrived instantly. While one river failed to obey Lord Rama’s divine call. But Lord Rama forced the Gayateerth to arrive at the spot. Waters of seven rivers were given to Jatayu and he eventually attained moksha.

The best time to visit Sarv Tirth Jatayu Mandir, Taked is on the occasion of Mahashivratri festival as a fair is organized every year near the sacred water pond for the devotees.
