  • Madha is famous for Rambhaji Nimbalkar who lived here and built a fort. The head-quarters of the Madha Panchayat Samiti are, however, located at Kurduwadi. Agriculture is the main source of income for the people of Madha. The principal objects of interest in the town are the fortress and the temple of Madheshwari Devi constructed by the Nimbalkars. Of the fort the wall on two sides and bastions at the four corners remain and the space is used to house the backward Class boarding conducted by the Zilla Parishad. A yearly fair is held at the temple in honour of Madheshwari Devi or the Jagdamba on the full-moon day of Ashvina (September-October). As far as the history of Tembhurni, Kurduwadi, Madha , is concerned some medieval Hemadpanti temples and many sculptures can be noticed at these places.
