The Mahuli Fort is located in the district of Thane in Maharashtra. It is situated at the convergence of the Krishna and Yenna Rivers at an altitude of 762 meters. The Fort was once the most important fort of the Maratha regime. The Fort has witnessed several wars and only the fort remnants remain now. The Fort architecture was greatly influenced by Maratha styled architecture and was famous for its stone carvings.
The Fort is the highest point around the region. The Fort was constructed in a very confusing manner. It is not very easy to explore the interiors without a guide. A panoramic view of the Tansa Lake is also visible from the Fort. The area around the Fort has been declared as a Forest Reserve. Most visitors like to do a one day trek to the hill top and stay overnight at caves. The best time to visit the Fort is from October to February.
