Event Overview

Rohida or Vichitragad is a Fort situated near Bhor village. Shivaji won the fort from the hands of Bandal-Deshmukh of Rohida in a close battle. After the battle, many officials along with Baji Prabhu Deshpande, a chief administrator of Bandals, were inducted into Swarajya movement. Rohida was among the 23 forts Shivaji handed over to Mughals (to Aurangzeb Alamgir) during the Treaty of Purandar (1665). On 24 June 1670 this fort was again captured by Shivaji Maharaj.
