FORT HISTORY
Peth is a small plateau, with a prominent funnel-like pinnacle on the top. The pinnacle called Kothaligad, is a fort. However as per the locals, this is not a fort but a sort of a lighthouse from where directions were given to know the advancements of the enemy. This was also considered a watchtower to keep a vigil on the Mawal area in the greater province of the Marathas. Because of its strategic elevation and location, the fort has passed many times between Maratha and British hands.
