Malhargad is believed to be the last fort built by Marathas. It was constructed by Army commander Panse who was in the service of Peshwa. The area on the fort is small. It must have been used as a watchtower to keep an eye on Dive ghat and surrounding region.
There are three routes to enter in the fort.
1. From the base village Sonori, one can cross a small hill and reach via Maha Darwaja (Main gate).
2. Another route is via Zendewadi village which is also via a hill.
3. The third one is from Kalewadi village which takes to Chor Darwaja (Secret gate). This is the route shown in Google Maps. We went up by this path.
