about sinhagad fort

If you are a history buff and want to know more about the glorious past of Pune, then Sinhagad Fort in Pune 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,  Sinhagad Fort 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.

Heavily crowded during weekends. Narrow roads with dense traffic will take away all your interest before reaching the top. You may even end-up parking 500m to 1km away from the fort. During monsoon, stall owners on the top won't allow you to park in ...... read more
