About the place -

Avchitgad is a fortified hill, about 977 feet high near Roha taluka in Raigad district of Maharashtra. The name Avchitgad, apparently from the Sanskrit avchitta or haste, accords well with its rough style of building. The fort is surrounded by the abundance of flora and fauna and offers a spectacular view of the landscape.
It is understood that the Avchitgad fort was established by the Shilahar Kings and later came under the rule of Nizam of Ahmednagar. The fort was the headquarters of a Subha in the Nizamshahi dynasty of Ahmadnagar. Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj reconstructed and fortified the fortress under his control. During the third Anglo-Maratha War, Colonel Prother from the British East India Company conquered Avchitgad from the Peshwas in February 1818 along with the neighbouring Surgad, Sarasgad and Sudhagad.
