Bhushangad

Bhushangad is a hill fort in the Khatav taluk of the Satara district of Maharashtra, India. It is oval in shape and rises 600 feet above the surrounding plain. Its top is flat being about 300 square yards in area.

The fort was originally built by Singhan II(1210 - 1247 CE) of the Devagiri Yadavs with its exact date of construction not known. However Shivaji fortified considerably in 1676 so it is usually attributed to him. The nearest fort is 5 miles away.

The fort is home to the only temple of Harinaidevi (an incarnation of Durga), who is revered by the Kulkarnis clan. There is also a temple dedicated to Maruti.
