Kavnai and Tringalwadi are 2 forts in the Trimbakeshwar region of Nashik surrounded by other forts like Harihar, Anjaneri, Gadgada Sanghvi, Kalsubai, Alang, Madan and Kulang. Kavnai is smaller compared to Tringalwadi.

Short Information: Kavnai

Kavnai Fort stands ten miles north of Igatpuri, two miles west of the railway line, midway between the Ghoti and Bailgaon stations of the Peninsula Railway. The fort, which is said to have been built by the Moghals, was ceded to the Peshwa by the Nizam in virtue of a treaty concluded after the battle of Udgir (1760) When the Marathas were defeated at Trimbak in 1818, Kavnai, like Tringalvadi and fifteen other neighbouring forts, fell without a struggle to the British. Captain Briggs who visited it after its surrender found two houses at the foot of the hill where the garrison lived. The ascent was easy till the scarp was reached. The scarp, though not very high, was nearly perpendicular and was climbed by bad rock-cut steps. There was only one tolerable gate. The top of the fort was small with an ample water supply and good houses for the garrison.

Although the exact period of construction of this fort is not known, however, by virtue of ‘Pandav Leni’ near the foothills, one can roughly estimate the fort to be in existence since 10th century.
