About Sinhagad Fort

The Sinhagad Fort Pune overlooks the city at the height of 700 m and is a wonderful reminder of the presence of mind of the Maratha warriors. Tanaji, a general in Shivaji’s army who died in 1670, lies buried here in a simple tomb. The Sinhagad Fort stands majestically on a nearly perpendicular, jagged rock face. A giant lizard called the Ghorpad, played the local hero in the war, where the clever Tanaji used its firm grip, to have his troops scale the otherwise insurmountable rocks. The fort itself is fairly well-maintained and allows a quick look at history. Sunset is magnificent from this height, and it is a good idea to reach the fort by 5 pm to watch it. You can club your travel plans with places like the ISKCON temple, Katraj Jain Temple and the National Defence Academy Khadakvasla. The IT hub of Hinjewadi and its surroundings provide many homely places to stay near Sinhagad Fort Pune. Pune also offers many hotels near Sinhagad Fort that are pocket-friendly like the White Orchid Resort. The winter is pleasant and summers best avoided when making your itinerary.

Pro Tip: Local food in Pune worth trying is the Bhakarwadi sweet rotis and Pitla Bakris with hot and spicy garlic chutney.
