Arranged on Ajinkyatara Mountain, at a height of 3,300 feet, Ajinkyatara Fort offers an all encompassing perspective of Satara City. Ajinkyatara Fort was worked by Raja Bhoj of the Shilhara line. In 1673 CE, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj took control of this fortification from Adil Sha and further Aurangajeb controlled this stronghold between 1700 CE and 1706 CE. In 1708 CE, Shahu Maharaj won Ajinkyatara, stayed with the Marathas till the British vanquished the post in 1818 AD. Prior, Tarabai Raje Bhonsale had won this post from the Mughals and renamed it to Ajinkyatara. Under the Mughal administer, Ajinkyatara was called Azamtara. This was where Shahu Maharaj had detained Tarabai. This fortification has been where a few essential crossroads in Maratha history occurred.
