Location Details

The 32nd king of the Baglan dynasty, named King Nandev conquered the fort of Pisolgad from the Gawli King Jagchaya. Along with Pisolgad, he conquered many other forts on the region thus establishing the Baglan rule. Later, the Baglan rule continued for almost 332 years. In 1637 A.D, the last ruling King Bahirji surrendered to the Mughals and Pisolgad became Mughul property. Along with that, they got treasure, horses, elephants, army, gold, coins, canons and all the surrounding forts. In 1707 A.D, after the death of Aurangzeb, the Nizams took over this fort until the Peshwas conquered it in 1774 A.D. In 1818 A.D, the British took the charge of all the forts in this region and soon their kingdom was established.
User Experience

Pisolgad is a wonderful half day trek. To the North and West of the fort, are small pinnacles of Pisolgad which form a small descending range. On the onset of the climb is the entrance gateway at the East along with the fortification and bastions. To the left of the main entrance door are some caves which are inhabited by the bats. Their voice is very scary and one has to be careful. Climbing up is seen the remains of an old structure on the left and an entry gateway hidden in the trees towards the right. Encircled by the trees are many lakes on the top. To the North-East is the secret doorway.
