Nighoj

Nighoj is a village in Ahmednagar District, Maharashtra, India. It is about 90 kilometres away from Pune and is famous for the naturally created potholes ( tinajas) on the riverbed of the Kukadi River. Experts from all over the world come here every year to study the phenomenon of their formation.

Geologists indicate that formerly there was greater rainfall in this area and that the Kukadi River flowed out from the highlands with such force that scouring of the bedrock took place and resulted in the formation of these potholes and the gorge.
