About Explore Pratapgarh Fort

Pratapgad…does this name remind you of the famous Battle of Pratapgad? Indeed! This is the site where Shivaji Maharaj defeated Afzal Khan, commander of Bijapur Sultanate, and also the place where the tomb of Afzal Khan lies. Located at the west of Mahabaleshwar, this majestic structure is known for its historical grandeur. The fort is perched amidst lush greenery and rolling hills at a whopping height of about 3,540 feet above sea level. It was built by Shivaji in 1656. Scenic ponds, large chambers, and long dark corridors never fail to fascinate tourists who make it a point to explore the intriguing architecture. The interesting feature of the fort is that it is divided into Upper Fort which faces the northern and western side of the hill and the Lower Fort that is located on the southern and eastern side. Not only historians and explorers, but even nature lovers can spend a wonderful time exploring the beauty of this place.
