Location Details

The fort was built by the Bagul dynasty and named Bagulgad and then Baglan from 1308 to 1619. In 1638, Mughals invaded Baglan and conquered it ending the prosperous Hindu rule, after which the fort was named as Aurangagad. Mulher had been the Capital of Baglan for all this time. The Marathas attacked the Mulher fort in 1672. In this campaign, Shivaji Maharaj conquered the fort in the Maratha Kingdom. Afterwards, the fort of Mulher was again conquered by the Mughals.
User Experience

This fort is actually the second bastion of the Mulher fort. One can say it is a part of Mulher fort. There are three garrisons on the way to the forttop. While walking towards the fort-top there is a cave near to the second garrison. The top of the fort can almost be called a plateau. There are a couple of cisterns and a beautifully built reservoir. Remains of some residential buildings have stood the test of time. A bird's eye-view of the Mulher plateau as well as the fortifi ed spur, fort Hargad, Mangi-Tungi, Nhavigad, Tambolya and Hanuman Tekdi is admirable from the top of Moragad. Hargad, Mulher and Moragad, though being a trio have achieved a distinct position for itself.
