About Kamalgad Fort

Also called Bhelanja or Kattalgad meaning the death fort, Kamalgad Fort is a square hill fort in Panchgani. The fort is located 32 km from Satara, the builder of the is unknown. The fort is spread over 4 acres of land surrounded by steep rock and can only be reached by scaling the rocks. Earlier it was reached by an artificial tunnel at the base of the rock. Now the tunnel is blocked by the rock. The unusual thing about the fort is that it has no buildings and no gates, only steep rocks that provide the protection to the fort. The fort offers a magnificent view of the surrounding coastal plains. This place is also popular for the adventure sports activities here like horse riding, cycling and trekking. This is an awesome place to explore its marvelous and stunning architectural excellence.
