  • Dear Tourist,

    Machi Prabal is an ancient and beautiful village. It is situated half-way up a mountain (such a plateau or ledge is called a 'machi' in Marathi) at the base of the fort Prabalgad. Because of the two forts Prabalgad and Kalavantin and the natural beauty of the surrounding regions, many visitors and fort-enthusiasts are attracted to this place.

    To fully explore this area, you will need at least two days. However, many visitors have had some difficulty in finding food and lodging near this village. Some visitors would return home after one day tour and others would spend the night sleeping outdoors on the grass and eating whatever they could bring or manage to obtain. It is also hard for ladies and children to stay here comfortably.

    In order to provide a solution to this problem, the Bhutambare family has started a Kalavantin Durg & Prabalgad Dharshan Guide, Lodging& Food Service to help visitors. We provide you a tour package including every service you would require. The Bhutambare family provides these services using their own home as the base of operations.

    I Would like to Introduce Myself , My name is Nilesh Bhutambre (I am called 'Bhau' by those close to me, especially by everyone in my village). I’m only one “Adivasi “ boy who’s completing graduation in my village After completing my graduation and Diploma in Programming Language I am now employed as a Computer Operator & Programming Assistant at CEERI Unit, (a Central Govt. institute for research & development in the field of electronics) CSIR Madras Complex, Chennai.



    Suggestions and feedback about the services provided by this venture are most welcome. Your suggestions will help us improve the service experience that we provide to other tourists like you.

  2. 2. Prabalgad Prabalgad is a fort located in between Matheran and Panvel, visible from the Mumbai  g , Pune expressway. The fort is located at an elevation of 2300 feet in the Sahyadri mountains. It is located on a plateau very close to Matheran, but unlike Prabalgad fort  does not have a good source of water supply. It was known as Muranjan until it was  taken over and renamed by the Maratha forces under Shivaji's rule. ,p g g , Around 1458 Malik Ahmad, prime minister of the kingdom of Ahmednagar, took over  the fort during his conquest of Konkan. The fort was conquered by Shivaji from  Mughals in the year 1658. After establishing himself in Kalyan‐Bhivandi area, Shivaji's forces attacked the fort then governed by Kesar Singh, a Mughal sardar. On seeing the  signs of defeat Kesar Singh along with all the ladies in the fort committed suicide to  save themselves from being dishonoured in the hands of enemy. Inspite of Kesar Singh's orders, his mother hid herself along with her grandchild. Shivaji in an act of  kindness made sure the lady and the kid were allowed a safe passage. ki d d h l d d h kid ll d f In the year 1826 Umaji Naik, a freedom fighter, and his associates are believed to have  made this as their home for a brief period of time. .
