About Explore Panhala Fort

Panhala Fort is located 20 kilometers away towards the northwest of Kolhapur. You can visit this historical destination when in Kolhapur. Panhala Fort is also known as Panhalgad, Pahalla, and Panalla which is literally translated as ‘home of serpents.' Strategically located looking over a pass in the Sahyadri mountain range which is a major trade route from Bijapur to the coastal areas of Maharashtra, Panhala Fort sees a lot of visitors all throughout the year. Due to its location in the pass, earlier this fort was the center of many battles in the Deccan that involved the Marathas, Mughals, and the British East India Company. One of these skirmishes was the bloody Battle of Pavan Khind. At Panhala Fort, Tarabai, the queen regent of Kolhapur State spent most of her formative years. The fort is still standing strong with several parts intact. Learn more about Maratha history while you visit this fort and get to know interesting facts about wars and royal families who ruled Kolhapur.
