Brief Information of Forts

Bhaskargad or basgad is a part of Trimbak range, at 43 km east of Nashik and was built to guard the ancient Gonda Pass which was a trade route from west coast towards Nashik.

During 1271 to 1308 this fort was under the control of Yadavas of Devgiri. When Devgiri was taken over by Bahamanis, this fort went under their control. When Shahaji Maharaj revolted against Nijamshahi in 1669, the fort went under his control. In 1633, the moghuls gained control over Bhaskargad, In 1670 Moropant Pingle won this fort for Shivaji Maharaj and the moghuls regained it in 1688. In 1730, the fishermen rebelled with Mughals and captured the fort. Later it was with Peshwas till the British captured in 1818.
