not well maintained currently, with graffiti and writing on the wall, Small structure where Sambhaji was allegedly imprisoned ( house arrest). Easy to access. The view from the kota is breathtaking and the windows are inviting for budding photographers. Just a part of history.

Sajja kothi or sajja kiti is well known part of panhla fort. When you visit panhala you can go there and view a sajja kothi. Panhala is awesome for tourist attraction.

Sajja Kothi is an ancient building located inside the Panhala Fort. Sambhaji Maharaj was reportedly imprisoned here. The monument although historically significant needs maintenance to keep it intact.
