It was famously defended by Tai Telin a mistress of Pant Pratinidhi a killedar of the fort when he was captured.

Vasota fort is attributed to the Kolhapur Shilahara Raja Nandgopal (1178–1193) of Panhala. Vasota always remained with Marathas, Shirkes & Mores in the 16th century. Shivaji Maharaj incorporated Swarajya in 1655 during the conquest of Javli. Shivaji Maharaj named the fort “Vyaghragad” (Vyaghra – means tiger), owing to its difficult natural defence. After Shivaji Maharaj, Maratha Bajirao Peshwa carried on the Swarajya mission of ousting the Mughal invaders. In 1818 the British bombarded the fort with heavy artillery, destroying many buildings on Vasota (Chandika mandir, Daru-kothar, etc.) and looted property worth 5 lakhs.

Bamnoli, famous for its natural beauty, is a major tourist attraction located in the Satara District of Maharashtra, at distances of about 36 km from Satara City and 20 km from Kaas Lake.
