Kadamdungar, Dangs, Gujarat

Located 20 km from Ahwa off Ahwa-Waghai road near village Aamsarvalan, Kadamdungar is a hill with an average altitude of more than 1000 meters above MSL. It is a place of religious importance for the native tribals. As per their religious belief, the small caves, situated on the large plateau atop the hill, are believed to host seven ‘maavlis’ (a vernacular term for ‘mother goddess’) including Tandalasavar, Kamjasavar, Dudhasavar, Ghunghasavar, Fulasavar, Vaghasavar and Makhwalasavar. A large mela, organized every year from the eve of New Year to Bhai Bij, attracts a host of tribal population. They revere the seven ‘maavlis’ and dance on the tunes of ‘paavri’ through the night.
