Prabal Fort Overview

Ranked 10 of 56 sightseeing in Matheran

Prabal Fort, however in ruins, is among the most ancient monuments of the region. The fort was perched on Prabal Hills on the western side of Matheran. This historical fort was captured by the Maratha ruler Chhatrapati Shivaji from Mughals. As per historians, there was treasure at the fort during the time of capture.

Along with two gateways and eleven towers in the fortification, there is a pond on top of Prabal hills. The gateways were partly destroyed in the uncongenial fights of 1818. Presently, walls of four towers stand as a testimony of the days of yore.

Full on adventure, enjoyed with friends

Adventures full on. Start walking in the morning, hardly 1hr to go to fort top. Mid of road there is small hotel and room available for rest... You can carry snacks. And if you going for night please carry a torch.

Beautiful fort but need to carry sufficient water

This fort is of interest to me since many many photographs of Kalavantin Durg are taken from top of Prabalgad. It's dense at the top and no water available so take care to carry sufficient water with you. "Do not miss to get view of Kalavantin Durg from this fort".

Do not miss to get view of Kalavantin durg from this fort

This fort is of interest to me since many many photographs of Kalavantin durg are taken from top of Prabalgad. Its dense at the top and no water available so take care to carry sufficient water with you (Specially in summer season).
