History of lonavala

The history of Lonavala City dates back to the period of the Yadava dynasty. Later, the Mughals took over after realising the strategic importance of the place and ruled over the city. They were followed by the Marathas and Peshwas. They established several forts in the area, which played an important role in their empires. In 1871, Lonavala came under the rule of the British and went on to become one of the major hill stations in Maharashtra. It was discovered by Lord Elphinstone, the Governor of Bombay Presidency at the time.\n\nThe town was under the rule of many dynasties, as evident from its ancient monuments and forts. This ancient town is definitely worth exploring, with its numerous forts, caves, lakes and historical sites. Some of the caves, such as Bhaja caves and Karla caves, are said to have been in existence since the 2nd century B.C.
