About Visapur Fort

Sharing the common ground trail with Lohagarh, Visapur Fort is located at a height of approximately 1200 metres. A grand confusion of boulders and unmarked steps create a tricky yet interesting route to the top. If you are a wanderer and doesn't mind getting lost, then this is a great trek for you. Within the fort, there are cisterns of water, ponds and ruins of chieftain's residence. You can see a huge carving of Lord Hanuman inside the fort and several temples dedicated to him scatter all over this attraction near Lonavala. Due to its strategic location, this fort was used to watch downhill movements during Maratha period. You get a mesmerising view of the plains coupled with scenic surroundings of the hills. It is a must visit for history, heritage and trek lovers.

Historical Context: Visapur Fort was built by Balaji Vishwanath, the first Peshwa during 1713-1720 CE. In 1818, Visapur was attacked and occupied by British battalions. They set up their canons at Visapur taking advantage of its higher elevation and bombarded Lohagarh thereby forcing Marathas to flee. In 1818, Lohagad-Visapur was placed under the command of a Colonel Prother.
