MUMBAI DISTRICT
INVENTORY OF MONUMENTS
MUMBAI CIRCLE
Formerly a princely state of the Bhonsle dynasty under the Deccan division of the Bombay Presidency, Kolhapur was an important Maratha province, after the other dominions such as Baroda, Gwalior and Indore. This district was the flashpoint of several battles, chief among which was the wresting of control by the Mughals who captured Prince Shahu Sambhaji at the age of nine in 1707. Hence this site is characterized with numerous monuments in the form of cave complexes, fortifications and architecturally rich temples. The topographical land form consisting of hills, also ensured that the settings for most of these monuments were pristine with striking views of the countryside.
