Region: Karjat |Fort Height: 3700 ft. |Grade: Medium: Thrilling |Mode of Transport: Public Transport The name Irshalgad itself is a misnomer; Irshal is not a fort but actually a pinnacle. This is the reason why it hardly figures anywhere in history. Shivaji Maharaj captured the complete region of Kalyan and Bhiwandi, up to Rairi in May 1666. This fort too, must have come under the Maratha rule at that time. Irshalgad is a fortress located between Matheran and Panvel in Maharashtra, India. It is a sister fort to Prabalgad. The area of the fort is not large but there is several water cisterns cut from the rock. Chowk village is birth place of Netaji Palkar who was a close associate of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.
