Battle of Umberkhind took place on 2 February 1661 in the mountain range of Sahyadri near the city of Pen, Maharashtra, India. The battle was fought between the Maratha under Chhatrapati Shivaji and the Kartalab Khan of Mughals. The Marathas defeated the Mughal forces. Mughal forces consisted of 35,000 men, while there was just 1,000 light Maratha cavalry.
The battle is known for the strategic manner in which Shivaji deployed his forces and rapid movement that his army was able to achieve.
Lets walk on the historical path to salute strategical management of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.
