Mar: अकोला akōlā
‘Akol Tree’ [Asadgad] -City/District, Maharashtra
From Hin/Mar: akol/ankol, ‘sage-leaved alangium’ [Alangium salviifolium].
The akol/ankol is a small tree. It is used for the treatment of hemorrhoids and rheumatic arthritis.
Also, legend has it that an Akol Singh built a mud fort here in a distant era.
The full scale version was constructed by Asad Khan in 1697 when Aurangzeb was Emperor and it was named Asadgad after him [from Hin/Mar: gadh/gaḍhī, ‘fort’]. It was also called Akola Fort.
Akola fort is notable in that it is bereft of any decorative embellishments.
