The trio of forts, Mahuli, Palasgad and Bhandardurg stands tall near Asangaon in Thane District. The mountain range is a part of Tansa Wildlife Sanctuary and can be accessed from Asangaon.
Historically, the records before Shri Shahaji Maharaj are not known. The fort was under Nizam rule and Shri Shahaji Maharaj utilized the place as safe house during the childhood of Shri Shiv Chhatrapati for the family and important personnel. There were conquests for the fort between Mughals and Marathas until 1817 AD. British - East India company destroyed the steps around 1818 AD and the access to the fort was lost.
There are few ponds – cisterns, caves & entrances which indicate a glorious past. One can see a a good 360 degree view from the top with Alang Madan & Kulang, Kalsubai, Harishchandragad, Matheran & Tungareshwar.
