Chandan-Vandan, the twin forts, are situated at about 24 kms. from Satara. These forts can be easily identified from Pune-Satara route because of their flat plateaus.                                                                     

History:  These forts were built-up by king Bhoj II of Shilahar dynasty. Shivaji Maharaj overpowered Chandan-Vandan in 1673. Marathas ruled this region up to 1689. Afterwards Mughals ruled this fort. In 1707, Chhatrapati Shahu Maharaj won this region. Later, British ruled over these forts.
