Location Details

This fort gained importance due to the arrival of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj here. When Shivaji Maharaj was returning from Jalna village, 22 November 1679 the Mughal Sardar, Ranmast Khan challenged him with his army. The great war of the Marathas and the Mughals took place at this very place for almost 3 days. The warrior Sindoji Nimbalkar showed immense courage during this war. After the war, Shivaji Maharaj rested with his army at the Pattya fort. And then he named the fort as Vishramgarh. This indicates that Pattaya was under Swaraj during Shivaji Maharaj’s reign. Then in 1688 A.D. during Sambhaji Maharaj’s reign the Mughals conquered this fort from the Marathas.

To the East of Kalsubai runs a mountain range having hills like Mahankaal, Bitangad and towards the East is Aundha. To the South of this lies Pattya fort. The base, Pattewadi is a small village with 20-22 Adivasi families. To the West of this lies Pattya fort. A historic canon is seen at the base. There is a small temple of Lord Hanuman with beautiful stone carved statue. Climbing the stone steps, one reaches the temple of Goddess Pattya and two water tanks alongside. The gateway called Delhi darwaza stands strong to welcome the visitors. One reaches the top within 20 minutes from here. The very first thing visible on the top is the Ambarkhana, a structure built in stone. This domed structure is built in three levels due to the contoured plateau. This fort has it all, underground water tanks, fortification, basions and a cave towards the North. Aundha fort is clearly visible from Pattya.
