Bhushangad Fort History

Bhushangad is a hill fort in the Khatav taluk of the

Satara district of Maharashtra, India. It is oval in

shape and rises 600 feet above the surrounding plain.

Its top is flat being about 300 square yards in area.

The fort was originally built by Singhan II(1210 – 1247

CE) of the Devagiri Yadavs with its exact date of

construction not known. However Shivaji fortified

considerably in 1676 so it is usually attributed to

him[3]. The nearest fort is 5 miles away.

The fort is home to the only temple of Harinaidevi (an

incarnation of Durga), who is revered by the Kulkarnis

clan. There is also a temple dedicated to Maruti.
