Panhala - The Quaint Hill station

Panhala dashes all preconceived notions of a conventional Indian hillstation. Panhala measures just about 7 Km in circumfrence, and its strategic location near Kolhapur with easy access to Konkan meant that at various point in history it was embraced by different dynasties. However Panhala and Panhala Fort is mostly identified with Shivaji Maharaj who captured it in 1659 and Sambhaji who was imprisoned here.
