About This Place

When we talk of the Martha Empire and the quests of Shivaji maharaj, Torna fort is the first thing that comes to the mind. It was the first fort captured by Shivaji and when he was merely 16 years of age. In 1646 AD, Shivaji captured it and named it "Prachandgad", starting then, it witnessed many bloody battles. Its also important because after Shivaji's famous escape from Agra, he first came to this fort. It was then captured by Aurangzeb after the assasination of Shivaji's son, Shambhaji maharaj in 1704 AD and renamed as "Futulgaib". It was one of the only forts won by the Mughals after a real battle. Torna was later on restored to the Maratha confideracy under the treaty of Purandar by Sarnobat Nagoji Kokate.
