Sangameshwar Taluka is a taluka in Ratnagiri subdivision of Ratnagiri district in the Indian state of Maharashtra. The headquarters for the taluka is the town of Devrukh.[1] In Sangmeshwar the two rivers Sonavi and Shastri flow together. In fact, the very meaning of Sangama in Marathi is confluence, and so the name "Sangmeshwar". It is historically important as the place where Sambhajiraje, son of Chhtrapati Shivaji was captured by Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb.[2] Sambhaji was tortured and executed in Tulapur.
