Brahmagiri is a mountain adjoining Trimbakeshwar in the Western Ghats of Maharashtra. Arranged at an elevation of 1,298 m, Brahmagiri is the wellspring of the consecrated River Godai. Brahmagiri actually implies the slope of Lord Brahma. As indicated by the folklore, sage Gautama and his significant other Ahalya dwelled on this slope. A dairy animal was accidentally murdered by Saint Gautama while attempting to ward it off. To wash his wrongdoings, he venerated Lord Shiva to bring waterway Ganga on earth from the paradise. Satisfied with Sage Gautama's dedication, Lord Shiva asked for Ganga waterway to stream down as Godai to make Sage Gautama unadulterated. Subsequently, the stream is otherwise called River Gautami. Brahmagiri slope is considered as a tremendous type of Lord Shiva and henceforth the mountain climbing was considered as a transgression.
