Panhala MumbaiThe history of the Marathas is intimately linked with the history of Panhala Fort. Within the fort there are haunting anecdotes that are associated with different places within the fort. There is a temple within the fort called the Ambabai Temple. It is said that the great Maratha warrior Shivaji used to seek blessing here before venturing on an expedition. At a place called Pavan Khind, one faithful follower of Shivaji laid down his life fighting to facilitate Shivaji's escape.

The Panhala Fort is arguably the largest and strongest of all the forts in the region.
