Location Details

Along the forts of the region of the highest peak of Maharashtra, Kalsubai, are the forts which are the mile stones, who witnessed the history of this region. Mordhan is one of them. Mordhan has not been a spectator of any major events in the history. In 1670:71 A.D., after conquering the Tringalwadi fort at the west, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj also conquered Mordhan. Then in 1688 A.D., history has a record that the Mughals surrounded the fort. This fort might have been used to keep a watch on the surrounding region and neighboring forts.
User Experience

The most important feature of Mordhan is the gigantic North-South spread it has. The rhythmic flow of the river Darna can be beautifully observed and felt from the fort. The main square of the base village has a temple of Lord Hanuman. The structure of the fort is completely dilapidated. But, the view Mordhan offers all around makes one happy and contended. This fort of the Kalsubai range does not actually reflect itself as a fort since there is no fortification or bastions, no gateways or water tanks. There is no visible feature which could make this fort unique. But still, it’s a popular fort for the trekkers. It is an easy and relaxing trek.
