Irshalgad Information: Irshalgad is situated in Karjat Region. Other forts in this region include Prabalgad, Kalawantin, Sondai, Manikgad and Malanggad. Irshalgad is not a fort but it’s a pinnacle which is famous for its two caves and needle eye structure at the top. King Shivaji captured the complete region of Kalyan and Bhiwandi, up to Rairi in May 1666. This fort too, must have come under the Maratha rule at that time. Irshalwadi is at the base of pinnacle. Irshalwadi plateau is very beautifull and offers stunning views of matheran and morbe dam. The route of range trek Prabalgad to Irshalgad connects to this plateau from backside.
