Tracing Sambaji’s Steps

As I have visited various sites in Pune and around Maharashtra and India I realized that I have been in many of the places with Sambaji history.

One of my favorite places to visit for cycling and treking is Purandar Fort the birthplace of Sambhaji.

Sambaji’s coronation was at the Panhala Fort near Kholapur

When I realized I had been to Sambaji’s birth and coronation places I became deliberate about it and visited Sambaji’s death place too: Tulapur.

I visited Agra the place of Sambaji’s captivity. Must get to Raighad Fort when I can.
