Salher fort Ht. 5140ft
Just as Kalsubai boasts to be the highest peak in the Sahyadris in Maharashtra, Salher has the distinction of being the highest fort in the Sahyadris.
Baglan is the fertile region being fed by the rivers Mokshaganga and Akshaganga. This is one of the areas rich in agricultural productivity, forests and wealth and the villagers here are quite well to do. Still, there are tribes like the Kokan and Bhils living on these hills. The perimeter of the Salher fort is around 11 Kms encompassing an area of around 600 hectares.
The Salher fort is famous and known as the main place where Parashuram did his penance. After winning the earth and giving it as donation, he made land for himself to live in, by pushing the sea back with his arrows, right from this place. An ancient and historically significant place like this is also famous for its battles during the reign of Shivaji.
Mulher fort Ht. 4284ft
In ancient times, the village was located on the Mulher fort. In due course of period the villagers descended and Mulher village is now situated at foothills 2 kms. away from the fort. The village belongs to the period of Mahabharata, when it was known as Ratnapur. The King, Mayurdhwaj ruled this region, and the village was then named as Mayurpur. When Aurangazeb conquered this fort, the fort came into existence with the name as Aurangagad.
The citations of Mulher can be found in the first decade of fourteenth century, while ‘Puranas’ are believed to have few mentions of it. The fort was built by Bagul dynasty, who ruled the region from 1308 A.D. to 1619 A.D. The region was named Bagulged because of the rule of Bagul dynasty, which afterwards came to be known as Baglan. Basically, Bagul dynasty belonged to Kanoj. Eleven Kings of this dynasty ruled the Baglan region. These Kings were awarded the Degree of Bahirji. It was during the rule of this dynasty, the world-famous ‘Mulheri Muth’, the sword-handle, was made. Hinduism was established in this region much before than that in Vijaynagar.
