History Related to Me
I have a huge connection with the history of India and its rulers. I have been a witness of many atrocities and fortifications. During reconstruction I had some minor changes done that include 3 spires of temple, hall in the front of the temple and Nagarkhana on the top of the hall. I was built in the 11th Century by the Yadava Rulers of Maharashtra. After which a series of rulers ruled the city and made their own kinds of contributions. But it was during the reign of the Muslims that the temple was ruined and had to be re-constructed. This fort was built by him in order to keep a closer watch on the city and to keep it safe from other attackers.
