तोरणा किल्ला कधी आणि कोणी बांधला याचा पुरावा आज उपलब्ध नाही. येथील लेण्यांच्या आणि मंदिरांच्या अवशेषांवरुन येथे शैवपंथाचा आश्रम असावा. इ.स. १४७० ते १४८६ च्या दरम्यान बहमनी राजवटीसाठी मालिक अहमद याने हा किल्ला जिंकला. पुढे हा किल्ला निजामशाहीत गेला नंतर तो महाराजांनी घेतला व याचे नाव प्रचंडगड ठेवले. गडावर काही इमारती बांधल्या. राजांनी आग्र्याहून आल्यावर अनेक गडांचा जीर्णोद्धार केला, त्यात ५ हजार होन इतका खर्च त्यांनी तोरण्यावर केला. संभाजी महाराजांचा वध झाल्यावर हा किल्ला मोगलांकडे गेला. शंकराजी नारायण सचिवांनी तो परत मराठ्यांच्या ताब्यात आणला.
पुढे इ.स. १७०४ मध्ये औरंगजेबाने याला वेढा घातला व लढाई करून आपल्या ताब्यात आणला व याचे नाव फुतुउल्गैब म्हणजे दैवी विजय ठेवले. चार वर्षांनी सरनोबत नागोजी कोकाटे यांनी गडावर लोक चढवून गड पुन्हा मराठ्यांच्या ताब्यात आणला व यानंतर तोरणा कायम स्वराज्यातच राहिला. पुरंदरच्या तहात जे किल्ले मोगलांना दिले, त्यामध्ये तोरणा महारजांकडेच राहिला. विशेष म्हणजे औरंगजेब बादशहाने लढाई करून जिंकलेला असा हा मराठ्यांचा एकमेव किल्ला होय.
