Overview

Vasota Fort (also called Vyaghragad (व्याघ्रगड)) is located in Satara district. It was famously defended by Tai Telin a mistress of Pant Pratinidhi a killedar of the fort when he was captured. Vasota fort is attributed to the Kolhapur Shilahara Chief Bhoja II (1178–1193) of Panhala. Vasota always remained with Marathas, Shirkes & Mores in 16th century. Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj incorporated the fort into Swarajya in 1655 during the conquest of Javli. Shivaji renamed the fort “Vyaghragad” (Vyaghra – means tiger), owing to its difficult natural defense. In 1818 the British bombarded the fort with heavy artillery, destroying many buildings on Vasota (Chandika mandir, Daru-kothar, etc.) and looted property worth 5 lakhs.
One can witness Babu Kada (cliff) from the top.
