About Rajgad Fort

Once the capital of the Maratha empire, Rajgad is one among the major forts in Pune district. Located about 1,400 meters above sea level, the fort was earlier known as Murumdev. The fort has a strategic location and is well fortified with a huge base. It’s about 60km from the Pune city in the south-west direction in the Sahyadri ranges. Mostly in ruins, the remains of palaces, water cisterns and caves and the main entrance door known as the Mahadarwaja can be seen even today. Sitting on the hill called Murumbadevi Dongar, the fort was where Shivaji spent most of his time. This is the fort where Shivaji’s wife Saibai and son Rajaram died. A large number of trekkers and campers flock the fort especially post monsoon. Visitors to the fort should have enough time in hand to explore the huge area and the nearby tourist spots. Located inside the fort, the Padmavati Temple can accommodate almost fifty people.
