कुंडमळा – कुंडजाई देवी मंदिर तळेगाव दाभाडे

मुंबई-पुणे रेल्वेमार्ग व महामार्गावरील तळेगाव हे मोठे शहर आहे. बेगडेवाडी रेल्वेस्टेशनपासून सुमारे दोन किलोमीटर अंतरावर.

कुंडमळा म्हणून प्रसिद्ध असलेले हे बेगडेवाडी रेल्वे स्टेशनच्या जवळील एक छोटे गाव. सुमारे २ किलोमीटरवर असलेला हा कुंडमळा. इंद्रायणी नदीच्या प्रवाहात खालच्या खडकांवर कोसळून पाण्यामुळे तयार झालेल्या खोल दºया व रांजणखळगे मोठ्या प्रमाणात तयार झालेले आहेत. परिसरही खूपच निसर्गरम्य आहे.

पुणे जिल्ह्यातील मावळ तालुक्यात तळेगाव दाभाडे हे पुण्यापासून सुमारे ४० कि. मी. अंतरावर आहे. पुण्यापासून अगदी जवळ असल्याने स्वतःची गाडी असेल तर उत्तमच परंतु येथे जाण्यासाठी आपण मुंबई-पुणे महामार्गावरील ‘बेगडेवाडी’ स्टेशन येथे उतरून देखील ‘कुंडमळा’ येथे जाऊ शकता.

तसे पहायला गेले तर महाराष्ट्रामध्ये निघोज येथील रांजणखळगे हे जगप्रसिद्ध आहेत. या निघोज येथील रांजण खळग्यांंना सगळेच भेट देतात परंतु पुण्यापासून अगदी जवळ असलेले ‘कुंडमळा’ येथील इंद्रायणी नदी निर्मित रांजण खळगे आजही उपेक्षित आहेत. तसे पहायला गेले तर ‘कुंडमळा’ हे ‘इंदोरी’ आणि ‘शेलारवाडी’ या गावांच्या सीमेवर वसलेले ठिकाण आहे.
