Sangameshwar Taluka is a taluka in Ratnagiri subdivision of Ratnagiri district in the Indianstate of Maharashtra. The headquarters for the taluka is the town of Devrukh.[1] In Sangameshwar the two rivers Sonavi and Shastri flow together. The meaning of Sangama in Marathi (and most Indian languages) is confluence, and so the name “Sangameshwar”. It is historically important as the place where Chhatrapati Sambhaji, son of Chhatrapati Shivaji was captured by Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb.[2] Chhatrapati Sambhaji was tortured and executed in Tulapur.
