Asava is situated near Boisar in Palghar district and is usrrounded by the dense forest.  In ancient times, ports like Shoorparak, Dahanu, Tarapur, Shreesthanak (Thane), Kaliyan(Kalyan) etc; were doing brisk trade on a massive scale with other countries. The goods offloaded at these ports used to be get distributed countrywide by different routes. Forts were built to overlook the safety of these routes.
