Best time to visit chakan


A town well known for its historic past and religious significance. Ideal for sightseeing; visit with family!

Chakan is a town that boasts the Sangram Durga or Bhueekot Killa, which was once the domain of Chhatrapati Shivaji. The fort is surrounded by fortified walls and turrets. It differs from most Indian forts which were traditionally built on hilly, elevated land. The fort was the site of a historic 54 day resistance between the Maratha general Firangoji Narsala against Mughal Sardar Shahistekhan. The fort also withstood heavy Mughal attacks. The Chakreshwar temple is another site of importance. In May, Chakan celebrates a major festival called Khandobacha Urs.
