Trek To Kohoj Fort

Kohoj Fort, Palghar
1 Day

Event Overview

Kohoj fort can be reached from the Vaghote village on Palghar - Wada road. At the base of the fort is a lake which gives beautiful reflection of the fort. It takes 2 hours approx from the village to reach the plateau. On the plateau of the fort, a temple of Lord Shankar and 3 groups of water cisterns can be seen. Fortification and remains of settlements also can be seen at some of the places. On the way that stretches from the right side of the temple up the hill, there are three large water cisterns; two of which contain potable water.

On the top of this hill we come across a bastion and a temple of Lord Hanumana. There many natural pinnacles formed due to wind-erosion, two of them are man-shaped pinnacle which is one of the greatest wonder of nature’s creation. Very few of the historical evidences are coherent to this fort. Looking at its well-dug water cisterns, the fort can be said to be belonging to the Bhoj-period but no such evidences are available. In 16th century, Portuguese captured this fort from the King of Gujarat. They constructed fortifications and bastions on this fort. Later, in 18th century, Peshwe conquered this fort in their campaign of 1737. Afterwards the fort remained under the British rule.
