Sinhagad Fort

Located around 35 kilometers from Pune, this majestic 2000-year-old fort is one of the most important historical places in Pune. The fort has witnessed numerous battles like the 1670 battle of Sinhagad. Named after the saint Kaundinya, it has changed hands between Koli, Peshwa, and Mughal kings. It is located atop a plateau in the Sahyadri Mountains and houses the Kaundinya Eshwar Temple, some beautifully carved hidden caves, bastions, and tombs of Rajaram Chhatrapati and Tanaji Malusare. The ‘Pitla Bhakar’ served by locals is one to be relished.
