Once upon a time in ………..

Vasota fort– The place which we should visit once in a while. The most hilarious place that i have seen till date. The cold water surrounded everywhere and one side covered by forest and we were in this situation for a whole night. That day nobody slept for a minute too. The night with full of enjoy.
Vasota fort is attributed to the Kolhapur Shilahara Raja Bhoja II (1178–1193) of Panhala. Vasota always remained with Marathas, Shirkes & Mores in 16th century & then incorporated in Swarajya by Shivaji Maharaj in 1655 during the conquest of Javli. Shivaji Maharaj named the fort “Vyaghragad” (Vyaghra — means tiger), owing to its difficult natural defense. After Shivaji Maharaj, the brave Maratha Bajirao Peshwa carried on the Swarajya mission of ousting the Mughal invaders from our country. In 1818 however, British bombarded the fort with heavy artillery thereby destroying many buildings on Vasota (Chandika mandir, Daru-kothar, etc.) & looted property worth 5 lakhs.
Thanks to all my those special friends to made that 31st most memorable for me. With time I have lost some of them but I don’t care for them as they are not a part of my life now.
