The geographical position and terrain of Maharashtra is very vital and hard to conquer by the enemy. Chattrapati Shivaji Maharaj took advantage of the natural factors and built forts for defense and protection of the regions in Sahyadris and Satpuda mountain ranges.
Author says that forts in Northern Maharashtra are not visited often and are also less studied. Many of these forts are important witnesses of the memorable historic events held but are paid less heed by many historians and so are not popular among masses. These forts are also scenic and worth studying and author aims to make us realise to protect and restore these forts. Also study and know the history of these forts.
Author has briefed up useful information of each fort like various names of that fort, stories related to it, its geographical location, spot and remains now existing on the fort etc. Moreover, he provides the information of such forts which are not so popular and advocates to visit them like Mulher, Malegaon, Songir, Tribakeshwar, Ankai-Tankai, Laling, Rajdeher, Bhamer, Galnaa and Thalner.
