Umberkhind is famous for the battle between Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and Moghul sardar Kartalab Khan where Khan was trapped at the base of Umberkhind by merely 2000 Maratha soldiers and they defeated 30,000 Moghuls. This was one of the major battle where Shivaji Maharaj was leading from the front and not even a single Maratha soldier lost his life. This all took place because of the geographical location and Ganimi Kava strategy of Shivaji Maharaj.
