This historic fort is known to be from the period of Yadavas. Carvings on the 3rd entrance gate of the fort suggest that the fort was modified by Mohammad Adil-Shah. It also depicts the conquest of this fort in May 1656. Shivaji Maharaj won the fort from the hands of Bandal-Deshmukh of Rohid in a close battle. The conflict resulted in the death of Krishnaji Bandal. After the battle, many officials along with Bajiprabhu Deshpande, a chief administrator of Bandals, were inducted into Swarajya movement.
As per the infamous ‘Treaty of Purandar’, in 1666, the fort was surrendered to Mughals. Although, on 24th June 1670, Shivaji Maharaj regained the control over this fort.
Later, Mughals took over the fort but the chief commissioner of Bhor fought with Aurangzeb and won the fort back. Until the post-independence merger of all provinces, Rohida fort remained with the Bhor province (Bhorkar) along with other forts such as Rajgad, Torna, Tung and Tikona.
