Dajipur Overview

Dajipur is a very small place in Kolhapur district of Maharashtra, about 490 km from Mumbai. Dajipur is about 40 km from Radhanagari and 80 km from Kolhapur, situated very close to National Highway 17, connecting Mumbai and Kolhapur. It lies at the end of the Sahyadri mountain range, where the southern end mingles into the flatlands of Karnataka while the Konkan coastal area lies on the west. Marathi is the main language spoken in Dajipur.

Some of the most popular destinations in Dajipur are the Bison Wildlife Sanctuary and Gagangiri Maharaj in Gaganbawda. Well known for its wildlife, Dajipur features craggy mountains and dense forests with a large variety of wildlife including bison, wild deer, chital and various species of birds.

Dajipur Bison Sanctuary is located between the borders of Sindhudurg amd Kolhapur districts. Dense forests and mountain ranges surround this location, which is at a height of 1200 metres above sea level. The sanctuary is famous for Indian bison, which is locally known as Gava buffalo.

Besides, a number of birds and animals including antelopes, wild boar, bears, serpents, monkeys and smaller mammals, are found here. This sanctuary also protects many other animals like leopard, sloth bear, barking deer, mouse deer, sambar, giant squirrel, wild dogs, etc.

Dajipur Jungle Resort is an unexploited place, rich in natural wild life and wide varieties of plantation. It is also home to numerous rare herbs and medicinal plants like Karvand, Vagati, Ranmiri, Tamalpati and Toran Gagangiri. Maharaj’s Math is a popular place for camping and trekking.

Located 30 km from Dajipur Sanctuary, Radhanagari Wildlife Sanctuary is set amidst the major reservoirs, Shahu Sagar and Laxmi Sagar. The backwater of the Radhanagari Dam is a popular attraction.

Other than wildlife sanctuaries, the Magraj Pool also attracts a lot of people. The pool was named after Magraj, who was the head of a Brahmin family. The unique thing about the pool is its ancient architecture and the three empty tombs.

Kolhapur is located at a distance of 80 km from Dajipur and is popular for ancient temples like the Mahalakshmi Temple and cuisines like Tambada Rassa and Pandhara Rassa. Konkan is another popular coastal region near Dajipur that stretches from the northern part of Maharashtra to the southern part of Goa. It is popular for its beaches, palm trees and fresh water lakes.
