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.
