Great fort constructed by shivaji. It is advisable that you take a guide along you during the visit who will explain the details, historical significance etc. of the fort. Must visit this place.

This fort is a bit commercialized inside, as full off shops and eateries. Lots of locals live inside the fort hence the charm is lost. You are flocked with guides who just rush you through the spots.

This is bit far from the market where we stayed, but it was worth visiting this place. To go up the fort there are lots of steps, people will discourage, but the steps are not very steep except for initial few once.

People having issues in walking upstairs should refrain almost 300 stairs. Guide is must to understand it. Take some amla , water while you go there. But it is photographer's paradise from the top.

The fort was built many years ago and the history is mentioned on the monument. The condition of the fort says how old it is. One must not expect much of this place.
