Devaganv, a small and insignificant village in Acalpur tahsil and with a population of 216 as per the 1961 Census lies at the foot of the hills through which the so-called Vastapur short-cut from Acalpur to Cikhaldara runs. Between it and the fort, when there were no means of transport, a small stable was established at the foot of the hill to accommodate ponies of travellers using the path. Even now the stable, though practically in ruins, can be seen. The sole claim to distinction which Devaganv possesses is that, preliminaries of peace between the East India Company and the Bhosle were signed here on the 17th December, 1803, four days after the capture of Gavilgad by Wellesley.
