Information from Wikipedia.
“Tanaji is famously known for the Battle of Sinhagad in 1670. At Shivaji’s request, he pledged to recapture the fortress of Kondana near Pune. According to legend, he received the summons while at his son’s wedding, and immediately left the festivities. Tanaji and his troops were said to have scaled the fort with the help of domesticated monitor lizards (gorpad in Marathi), to whom they were said to tie ropes and sent crawling up to the top of the ramparts. Tanaji’s pet ghorpad (Yashwanti) purportedly climbed the ramparts after two failed attempts. Tanaji and his men then climbed the fort in pitch darkness. He and his men recaptured the fort from Udaybhan Rathod, fort keeper of Jai Singh I. This monitor lizard story is disputed among historians. “Gorpade” is a common surname amongst Marathas and it is likely that one of the first people to scale the fort was named “Gorpade””
“A fierce combat took place between Tanaji and Udaybhan. Udaybhan managed to rid Tanaji of his shield, but Tanaji fought on by tying a cloth over one of his hands and using it to ward off Uday Bhan’s sword attacks. Despite a lengthy fight, Tanaji was killed in battle, and Shivaji renamed the fort from Kondana to Sinhagad in his honor. Per legend, Shivaji’s words after hearing about the demise of Tanaji were Gad ala pan Sinha gela(“although the fort was captured a lion was lost”)”
