Description
Dear Friends,

There is no joy greater than taking a walk amidst a lush green forest, silently taking in the sights and sounds it has to offer you. The monsoons bring about a complete overhaul to the Sahyadris range of Mountains. The brown dried plateaus are covered in a carpet of green as new life abounds in this region. And it is absolutely fascinating to become a spectator and watch life bloom in its entire splendor. 

Come and join O.A.M. in this fascination to our "Hike to Sudhagad 
and a brief visit to Hot water springs at Unhere on 28th June 2015 in Pali - Khopoli region .

The Mountains are calling and we must go!!!!

 

History :

Sudhagad is one of the ancient forts in Sahyadri. It was the glory of Bhor state. According to the Puranas, Sage ‘Bhrugu’ had stayed here and he had established the temple of Goddess ‘Bhorai’ on this fort.

Sudhagad was included in ‘Swarajya’ in 1648. It is described in old records as follows:
“Malavji Naik Karake put the ladders in Sakharadara. Initially, Jadhav and Saranayak both climbed the fort under the guidance of chieftain ‘Maloji Bhosale’. After that Haibatrao climbed the fort. 25 soldiers went ahead and killed the guards. Further the chief of the fort was killed in anguish and the fort was conquered.”

Shivaji Maharaj renamed Bhorapgad as Sudhagad. Later Sambhaji met Akbar (the rebellious son of Aurangjeb) in the ‘Pachchapur village’ situated at the base of this fort. Annaji Datto, Balaji Aavji Chitnis, his son Aavji Ballal and Hiroji Pharjand were all important persons in ‘Ashta-Pradhan Mandal’ of Shivaji Maharaj. Sambhaji has killed all of them in ‘Parli’ village near Sudhagad.
