Location Details

In 1689 A.D., after the reign of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, the Mughal sardar Matabar Khan won the fort of Bhaskargad from the Marathas. With this victory, the fort Harihar also became a part of the Mughal kingdom. Before the Mughal victory, the complete region was ruled by the Marathas.History does not speak much about this fort.
