Location Details

Songad was conquered by the Mughals from the Nizams. In 1682 A. D., the Marathas tried to take over this fort but were unsuccessful. Tasting the benefits of the victory, the Mughals then conquered the fort of Trimbak, Tringalwadi and many others in the region. The Mughal army was at its best. But after the death of Aurangzeb, the Mughul foundation became weak and that was the time when the Marathas rightly attacked back. They won all the forts of the Mughal dynasty and Songad was one of them. It soon became a part of Swarajya.
User Experience

This is the last fort of the Aundha : Pattya range. It is a fort of medium grade where one has an easy climb. After a climb of half an hour, one can find steps for the further ascend. There are two caves in the way which have survived across the centuries. The mountain has a temple of Bhairoba at the top. A yatra is held every year which brings along the devotees of Bhairoba. There are no remains of the fort here. Reaching the top, one sees the Mahakumbh River at the North, Bhojpur water body at the North – East, Baleshwar Mountain at the South – West, and Devthan dam at the South. A small pathway from the top of the hillock towards the North leads one to the foothills. The same pathway takes one to Parvatgad after revolving around Songad. Both these places can be seen in one day.
