Adventure geek invite you for Talgad and Kuda Caves Trek
Many forts have been built on the mountain ranges surrounding Roha, of which Talgad fort is one. Its main objective was to keep a watch on the Mandad creek where the Kundalika river meets the Arabian sea. Kundalika river served as a vital trade route and thus Talgad, Ghosalgad, Avchitgad forts, and Kuda caves were built for its protection which signifies the importance of the trade route.
Shivaji Maharaj won the fort from Adilshah of Bijapur in 1648 AD. When Afzalkhan attacked the Maratha kingdom in 1659, Talgad fort was seized by Siddi. Later, on hearing the defeat of Afzalkhan, Siddi released the seize citing fear from the Maratha warriors.
The significance of this fort is clearly highlighted from the fact that Shivaji Maharaj retained the fort along with 11 others in the Purandar pact when he had to give away the rest to the Mughals.
Kuda Caves are ancient Buddhist caves that date back to the 1st century BC. Being a complex of 26 rock-cut caves, they are amongst those wonderful places where you can trace the history of Buddhism in the region. These caves were made for Buddhist monks who used to live and meditate here.
