about raigad fort

The imperial Raigad Fort marks the spot where Shivaji was crowned "Chhattrapati" in a grand ceremony in 1674. Standing tall at 870 m above sea level, it is situated at the summit of a formidable hill. The fort can be accessed both by a cable car or by climbing around 1,500 steps.

Certain new structures have been added to the fort including the samadhi of Shivaji and his loyal dog. The most spectacular site on Raigad Fort is the Balekilla, from where you can see the beautiful views of the enchanting Sahyadris and the propitious Bhatghar Lake. One can also see the forts of Vichitragad, Lohgad, Purandar, Rayreshwar, Visapur, Tikona and Sinhagad. 

The challenging terrain makes it close to impossible to get into the fort through the rocky path. Raigad ropeway offers a more convenient access to the fort.
