इतिहास:
उत्तर कोकणातील हा किल्ला त्याच्या मुलुखात असलेल्या पनवेल, कल्याण या प्राचीन बंदरांवर नजर ठेवण्यास असावा. किल्ल्यावरील गुहांच्या अभ्यासावरुन त्यांचा कालखंड बौद्ध कालाशी जोडता येतो. त्यांच्यावरील मनुष्यनिर्मित गुहांमुळेच उत्तरकालातील शिलाहार, यादव या राज्यकर्त्यांनी त्याला लष्करी चौकी बनवून मुरंजन असे नाव दिले. बहामनीच्या कालात हा किल्ला आकारास आला असावा. नंतर अहमदनगरच्या निजामशाहीच्या ताब्यात तो आला. निजामशाहीच्या अस्तावेळी शहाजीराजांनी निजामशाहीच्या वारसाला छत्र धरून निजामशाही वाचवण्याचा प्रयत्न केला. पण मोगल सम्राट शाहजहान आणि विजापूरचा आदिलशहा यांनी तह करून आपल्या संयुक्त फौजा शहाजीराजांच्या मागावर पाठवल्या. तेव्हा शहाजीराजे पळ काढून कोंढाणा व मुरंबदेवाच्या डोंगरात निघून गेले. नंतर कोकणात जंजिऱ्याच्या सिद्दीकडे गेले असता त्याने आश्रय नाकारल्यावर चौलला पोर्तुगीजांकडे गेले. पण त्यांनीही नकार दिल्यावर शहाजीराजे जिजाऊ, बालशिवाजी आणि लष्करासह मुरंजनावर गेले. सन १६३६ मध्ये बालशिवाजींनी मुरंजनाचा उंबरठा ओलांडला. १६३६ मध्ये माहुलीचा तह झाला. त्यात उत्तर कोकण मोगलांच्या ताब्यात गेले आणि मुरंजनवर मोगली अंमल सुरू झाला. पण प्रत्यक्षात तेथे विजापूरच्या अदिलशहाचीच सत्ता होती. पुढे ही संधी शिवरायांनी साधली. जेव्हा शिवरायांनी जावळीच्या चंद्रराव मोरेला हरवून जावळी ताब्यात घेतली, त्याचवेळी म्हणजे १६५६ मध्ये शिवरायांचा शूर सरदार आबाजी महादेव याने कल्याण भिवंडी पासून चेऊल ते रायरीपर्यंतचा सारा मुलूख स्वराज्यात घेतला. तेव्हा मुरंजन शिवाजी महाराजांच्या ताब्यात आला. किल्ल्याचे नाव बदलून किल्ले प्रबळगड असे ठेवण्यात आले. पुढे १६६५ मध्ये पुरंदरच्या तहानुसार मोगलांना दिलेल्या २३ किल्ल्यांमध्ये प्रबळगड शिवाजी महाराजांनी दिला. जयसिंगाने किल्ल्यावर राजपूत केशरसिंह हाडा हा किल्लेदार नेमला. पुढे पुरंदरचा तह मोडला. मराठे किल्ले परत घेत असतांना मराठयांशी झालेल्या लढाईत केशरसिंह धारातीर्थी पडला. तत्पूर्वी राजपूत स्त्रियांनी जोहार केला. केशरसिंहाची आई व दोन मुले किल्ल्याच्या झडतीत सापडले.शिवरायांच्या आदेशानुसार त्याने सन्मानाने देऊळगावी मोगल छावणीत पाठवण्यात आले. नंतर किल्ल्यावर खोदकामात बरीच संपत्ती आढळली.
