A hill-top fort accessible from only one side, Raigad Fort is the shining jewel in the Maratha and Indian history. The fort is located at an altitude of 2700 feet on an irregular wedge shaped rock and was famous for fending the enemy off under the brave Maratha rulers. Raigad Fort means the King's fort and its regal architecture is an engineering marvel. The wonderful bastions, ramparts, wells, water reservoirs, residences for commoners and dignitaries, gardens, pathways, pillars, and the palatial structures were added to the fort during Shivaji's rule. Explore the Chit Darwaja at the foothills, Maha Darwaja or the main entrance, Mena Darwaja for queens and royal ladies, Palkhi Drawaja in front of the Queen's chamber, and Khoob Ladha Buruj. A look into the jaw-dropping abyss of Bhavani Tok and Takmak Tok tells you why the fort was considered invincible. The rocky path of 1500 steps to the fort may be a bit strenuous for some but the breathtaking view of the surrounding valleys from the fort compensates the tiring journey. Trekking expeditions to Raigad Fort is extremely popular. Alternately, you can reach the fort quickly in five minutes on the ropeway - the ticket for the ropeway includes viewing of a short film on Raigad.
