Hello friends, welcome to my blog. Today we are talking about the History of a fort which has a different identity in India since last 2000 years which is Kondana Kila – The Immortal Fort
This is the “Fort of Sinhgad” which was earlier called the “Fort of Kondana” (History Of Kondana Kila)
Sinhgad Fort (Kondana Kila) is located at a distance of about 35 km southwest of Pune city. It is said that Kondana Fort is 2000 years old.
It is located at an altitude of 1312 meters above sea level. It has 2 doors
1. Kalyan Darwaza – South East Side
2. Pune Darwaza – North East
HISTORY OF KONDANA KILA SINHAGAD – THE IMMORTAL FORT
Kondana Fort (Kondana Kila) has seen and endured many wars. The most memorable of these is “War of Sinhgad”.
When the Mughals under the leadership of Udaybhan Singh took over the fort of Sinhagad (Kondana Kila), Maharaja Chhatrapati Shivaji demanded Tanaji Malusare, who was also his special friend and general, to take back the Kondana fort.
Not giving importance to the son’s marriage, Tanhaji refused to listen to Shivaji and went to Kondhana Fateh with about 1000 of his soldiers.
Tanhaji and his army resorted to a reptile “Go” to cross the steep ascent of the Kondhana Fort.

Half the soldiers had not even climbed into Kondana Kila that the soldiers of the Mughal got a glimpse of Tanhaji and attacked him.
Tanhaji had to face the Mughal soldiers until all the soldiers came up.
He was tired of fighting so long and fighting soldiers, and then he faced Udaybhan Singh, the Sardar of Mughal soldiers.

After that Tanhji Malusare and Udaybhan Rathod fought with each other.
In a long war with Udaybhan Singh, Tanaji Malusare falls to Veeragati, the rest of Tanhaji’s soldiers climb the fort and take the fort to their kingdom.
Shelar Mama when saw this, he came to Uday Bhan heavily and Killed him in Kondana Kila Battle.
And Udaybhan Rathod attacked and killed by the Maratha Soldier Shelar Mama.
In this way Udaybhan Rathod died. And This is the reasonn of Udaybhan rathod Death.
Even after winning the fort, no one is able to celebrate Shivaji and his kingdom and praising Tanhaji, Shivaji says that
“Gad Ala Pan Singh Singh Galla”
Meaning the fort has arrived but the lion has gone. And in memory of Tanhaji, Shivaji named Kondana Fort (Kondana KIla) as Sinhgad Fort so that in the future,the whole world would remember the history of Tanhaji Malusare.
So this was the history of Tanaji Malusare and Kondana Kila which after that known as Sinhagad Fort and which till date enhances the spirit of courage and hope in the people, tells us how many Veerputras were born in our India and made the land of India proud.
