About Prabal Fort

Nestled atop the flat summit of the high and mighty Prabal Hills is the Prabal Fort that lies in proximity to the Matheran Hill Station. One of the oldest monuments sustaining in this part of Sahyadri Mountain Ranges, this majestic piece of architecture is prominently visible from almost all the vantage points of Matheran. Standing the tests of time, Prabal Fort still holds the legacy of the meritorious Maratha rule in Maharashtra, which in present times is almost in ruins. Formerly possessed by the Mughals, the legendary Prabal Fort was conquered by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, and as suggested by historical anecdotes, the fort was replete with illimitable treasure when acquired. It retains two gateways - eleven towers, and a small water lagoon. Though the gateways of the garrison were destroyed during wage wars to a certain extent, the walls of the four towers still stand proudly singing the sagas of the glorious yesteryears of Maratha Sovereignty.
