In 1635-36, Shahaji Raje transferred himself with Jijabai and Shivaji Maharaj to Mahuli.When Khan Jaman attacked the fort, Shahaji asked Portuguese for help, who refused and Shahaji surrendered. Shivaji Maharaj took this fort from Mughals on 8 Jan 1658. In 1661 it was given back and was won again by Shivaji Maharaj. In treaty of Purandar,In 1665, Marathas lost these forts again.
