Dear All,

Details r as follows

Brief Introduction about Kohoj Fort: –

Height: ~ 3200 feet
Grade:  Medium
Time: ~ Maximum 2.5 hrs from Waghote, Base Village
Location: Palghar region


Very few of the historical evidences are coherent to this fort. Looking at its well-dug cisterns, the fort can be said to be belonging to Bhoj-period. But no such evidences are available. In 16th century, Portuguese captured this fort from the King of Gujarat. They constructed fortifications and bastions on this fort. Later, in 18th century, Peshwe conquered this fort in their campaign of 1737. Afterwards the fort remained under the British rule.
