About Kavnai:

It is said that the fort was built by Mughals. It was ceded to Peshwas by Nizam under the terms of the treaty held after the Battle of Udgir (1760). This fort along with Tringalwadi and fifteen other forts were captured by the British army under the leadership of Col. Briggs.

 

The ascend to the fort is very easy along a ridge which starts from the village kavanai. There is only one gate to the fort. The final ascent to the fort is vertical with poor rock-cut steps. The villagers have secured the approach by fixing an iron ladder. It takes about an hour to reach the top of the fort.

 

Major Attractions:

  • The main gate at the top of the fort and
  • A pond at the top of the hill fort
  • Mesmerising view from the top.
