Chanderi is an ancient army fort situated near Vangani (Kalyan).There are not much remnants on the top except few water tanks and shatters stones.The view from the top is really alluring, one can observe Karnala, Prabalgad, Irshalgad, Manikgad, Peb, Matheran, Nakhind, Navranavri, Tavli etc from the top.

There is no significant history attached to this fort. Near the caves on the fort are visible some remnants of fortification. This is the only sign to designate Chanderi as a fort. In May 1656, ShivajiMaharaj conquered all territory up to Kalyan-Bhiwandi-Rairi. This was when this fort came under the rule of the Marathas.
