Whenever the name Sinhgad comes up, it reminds me that chapter of history where i had read about the bravery of Tanaji Malusare, he was a great Maratha warrior and General of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. This fort has seen many wars and blood sheds, and famous among them is the war of 1670, where Tanaji Malusare sacrificed his life and the Maratha warriors captured the fort. Chhatrapati Shivaji termed Tanaji as “sinha” (Marathi equivalent for English “lion”) and renamed Kondhana as Sinhagad.
