ABOUT Sinhagad Fort
If you are a history buff and want to know more about the glorious past of Pune, then Sinhagad Fort should top the list. Come here to marvel at the simplicity of the tomb of Tanaji, Shivaji’s favourite general. He died here in the year 1670 after a successful bid to capture the fort. Legend has it that Tanaji and his men climbed the unprotected near-perpendicular face of the hill. He is said to have hurled a ghorpad, a local lizard species, tied to a stout, long rope. The ghorpad, called Yashwanti, anchored herself to a crevice in the rock face with strength enough for 300 troops to climb the fort!

Located on a hilltop, it offers amazing views of Pune city. It is also a favourite ground for trekkers as the fort is located at a height of 700m and has an interesting track which you would love to explore. Don’t forget to have some delicious Pithla Bhakri and refreshing Buttermilk which are sold by the roadside vendors when you visit this majestic fort.

"“Historic Fort”"
reviewed on Jun 29 2014
Foot prints of history of Shivaji's time. Fort is very nice. Too much story to be unfold from this place. You'll come to know how do they manage all to take over this fort with their canons. Fort is one day vist. Nice place must visit nearby Pune.This place reminds you of time of Shivaji maharaj. very beautiful view from the top.the car goees on the top. you can relish on kanda bahji and pathala bhakri and home made matka curd here.
