Description

Kohoj Trek

Very few forts, to the north of Mumbai in Palghar region of Thane district, are still showing their existence, among which is the fort of Kohoj. This fort lies at about 10 to 11 kms. from Wada on the route of Wada – Palghar. On reaching the plateau of the fort, a temple of Lord Shankar can be seen, which has now been rehabilitated. Two cisterns can be seen in front of the temple. One of the routes descends from the left side of the temple, where seven adjoined cisterns are located. One of the cisterns bears clean water. The other two cisterns have been spoiled, the remaining four being clogged. Few remnants in dilapidated state can be seen to the right of the temple. Fortification is also seen at some of the places on the fort. The other way stretches from the right side of the temple up the hill. Three large cisterns can be seen on this route, one of which is clogged and the other two contain water. This water can be used for drinking. An idol of Lord Hanumana can be seen near these cisterns.
