About Lohagarh Fort

Lohagarh, the iron fort, was so named as it was considered impregnable. At a height of 1050 metres, it is situated atop an impressive hill of Sahyadri amidst lush green surroundings. This attraction near Lonavala makes for an ideal trekking destination. In proximity to Bhaja caves, you find a path climbing gradually to the col between Lohagarh and Visapur forts. You pass through steep steps and a formidable series of gates before reaching the top of this fort. An exciting destination for people who love architecture, history and nature, its ease of accessibility makes it a popular weekend getaway. Vinchu Kata, a range of hills that look similar to Capricorn, is a famous spot of Lahogarh fort. From the backside of this historical destination, you can see Pawana Dam as well.

Historical Context: Soaked in history, Lohagarh was occupied by several dynasties over centuries. Satavahanas, Chalukyas, Rashtrakutas, Yadavas, Bahamanis, Nizamshahis, Mughals and Marathas have used it as a strategic location while fighting enemies. Shivaji Maharaj captured it in 1648 CE but had to surrender it to Mughals. It was a great military marvel of pre-historic British era.
