Tringalwadi is a small fort situated in the Igatpuri region, approximate 7 kilometers away from Igatpuri station. It was basically built for the purpose 

to keep a watch on the surrounding area. One can see a beautiful entrance with amazing steps, carved in one rock, caves, water cisterns and of course some 

remnants on the fortification and a beautiful view of back water of Tringalwadi dam. At the base of the fort are beautiful Jain Caves which are dated back 

to the 10th century.

 

The exact period of construction of this fort is not known, however, by virtue of ‘Jain caves’ near the foothills, one can roughly estimate the fort to be 

in existence since 10th century. Also there is no evidence regarding the period during which it was under control of Marathas, however, 

during the year 1688; Mughals took control over the fort by perfidy.
