A trek on Purandar fort was organized by Department of Electronics and Telecommunication for S.E E&TC I & II students on 4th February 2016 from 7 am to 6:30 pm. Nine staff members accompanied 94 students for the trek. Purandar Fort figures repeatedly in the rising of Shivaji against the Adil Shahi Bijapur Sultanate and the Mughals. Fort Purandhar stands 4,472 ft. above the sea in the Western Ghats, 50 km southeast of Pune ahead of Saswad village. The village Purandar takes its name from this fort. Purandar fort is also known for birthplace of Sambhaji Raje Bhosale son of Chhatrapati Shivajiraje Bhosale. It was an overall fun activity thoroughly enjoyed by students and staff.
