Grade: Easy /Easy

Time:~ Max.30 min frm Tala village/Max.45 min frm Ghosal

Location:Roha, Raigad

 

Talgad:

A fortified monument on the southern bank of Malti creek, the Tala fort lies east west at a height of 1000 feet above the sea level in Tala town in Maharashtra. The fort is separated from the rest of the hill by a wide gap. This protected monument of 4th century was built during the reign of Bhoja Raja and was used as a watch on the beautiful Rajpuri stream. Tala fort is a very good example for the artistic talents of the then generation. The bottom of the hill in which the fort situates is surrounded by thick woody forest. Once a center of prime importance, this marvelous construction stands as the relic of its past glory.

 

Kuda Caves:
Kuda caves, famous for Buddhist caves. These rock cut caves are classic example of Buddhist cave art and amazing for their architectural excellence. These caves have two levels and the individual blocks are smaller and are on the upper levels. The inscriptions on the caves are the preaching of Buddha and his disciples. The interiors of the caves are carved with stupas and a rock carved image of an elephant as the janitor is inscribed on the front gate of the caves. 
In many of the caves in Kuda hills, there are evidences to testify that monks used them as dwelling places. The inscriptions, letters and paintings in the Kuda hills shows that these caves are built in during first to sixth centuary B.C. Set up on a hilly terrain, the Kuda caves give a magnificient view of the valley below. This is a recommended place for those who are having a keen interest in historical monuments and archeology.

Ghosalgad:

Approx 9 km south of Roha and 32 km east of Murud is a mountain which arises majestically to the sky. A fort on the top of hill has been named Ghosalgad after the village Ghosala below. The fort was used as look out post for those ruling over Murud.

As the base village Ghosal is at a considerable height, a hike to the fort from the base is not much and there is an easy path to the top. A water pond named Wajta Haud, remnants of watch tower, fortified wall, temple of Bhavani and Ganapati, water cisterns etc. can be seen atop. A beautiful view of base village Ghosala, Murud creek and Talagad can be seen from the top.
