Brief details Mahuli:
The known history of this fort dates back to 15th century when this place came under the rule of Nijamshahi.When nijamshahi dynasty was about to end, ShahajiRaje took control of it as a secretary of Nijamshahi and tried to protect it from Mughals and Adilshahi.He couldn't hold it back for a long had to surrender it.
Shivaji took this fort from Mughals on 8 Jan 1658. In 1661 it was given back and was won again by Shivrai. In treaty of Purandar, in 1665, Marathas lost these forts again. The Moghal sardar Manohardas Gaud was the in charge of this fort. He did much construction on the fort. In Feb 1670, ShivajiMaharaj tried to conquer Mahuli, but failed. Thousand of Marathas were killed by Moghals. It was a bad blow to Marathas. Even after this victory, Manohardas Gaud, the chief of the fort gave up his position and a new chief Alveerdi Beg was appointed. On 16 June 1670, after two months, MoropantPingle conquered the forts and Mahuli, Bhandargad and Palasgad became part of Swarajya.
