Panhala fort is situated at 20 kms from Kolhapur city. Panhala is well known hill station in Maharashtra.
Panhala fort was built by Raja bhoj at 12th century, its then taken by Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj from Vijapur.It has great story of escape by Chatrapati Shivaji.
Panhala is great place to spend vacation in monsoon season because of its marvelous weather. Its great to watch all historic places on fort as well as to spend some chilling walk in Tabak udyan located on fort.
As Panhala is in Kolhapur, so does it food taste the same. Just like Kolhapur, you can get Kolhapuri mutton and Tambda Pandhra Rassa, the specialty of Kolhapur. Its just perfect in such cold weather and in rainy days. And even if you are a vegetarian, you can also get best bhaji in Maharashtra and Traditional Pithal Bhakari on fort.
Do visit Panhala fort. Although its cold place, its get warm by Kolhapuri locals.View Photo Gallery - Panhala Fort
