Location Details

Karhegad was under the Mughal kingdom during the reign of Shivaji Maharaj. It does not have a noteworthy history to it. All the forts which fall towards the East of Baglan have remained aloof from the history. For a longtime, this region was ruled by the Mughals. And to the West of Baglan was the Hindu rule. Before the British took over the fort in 1818 A.D., there were many differences between the Mughals and Marathas over acquiring the fort. The Marathas were able to create an upper hand in their entire span of rule. Karhegad is also known as Kamaalpir
User Experience

There is a small temple of Goddess Durga on the top of this fort. Karhegad, towards the East of Bistha, grabs attention due to the tiny temple on the top. It lies on the range which spreads to the South of Bistha. Karhegad has vertical faces on all the three sides except the North. This strengthens it more. To the North, there are some water tanks carved on the top as well as on the sides. The view from the top is exhilarating. Towards the North are the garlands of small and big hillocks in green gives a soothing view. Towards the South lies Ajmer. Towards the North–East lies Dundha surrounded by tress all around which appeals to the eye. This fort is a must watch if one is planning to go in the region around.
