Location Details

In June 1636, after a vigorous battle of two months, the Nizams accepted a defeat against the Mughals and the Rajdher fort came into the Mughal hands. The complete Nizam family was house arrested by the Mughals. Thereafter, this fort was with the Mughals even in the times of Shivaji Maharaj. During 1818 A.D., this fort became a British property. During this time, the way to the fort was destroyed with the canons. And the current scenario is still the same.
