S-R-T

Together, Sinhgad, Rajgad and Torna make the most significant cluster of historic forts anywhere in Maharashtra. Rajgad served as the capital of the Maratha Empire during the early years of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s life. This was the first capital of his idea of Swaraj. Torna was the first fort that Shivaji conquered at the young age of 16 years and thus the seed of the Maratha empire. Sinhgad, originally known as Kondhana is the third and the most significant fort of this trio. It saw more battles and attacks than most forts in the history of the Maratha empire. Most notable of them was the battle of Sinhgad in 1670 when the warrior “Tanaji Malusare” recaptured this fort from the Mughals and brought it back to the Maratha empire. He lost his life in this battle and became immortal in the annals of history.

Sinhgad Fort - 4320 ft.

Sinhgad is a fortress located roughly 30 kilometres southwest of the Pune, India. Perched on an isolated cliff of the Bhuleshwar range of the Sahyadri Mountains, it is situated on a hill rising 1312 meters above sea level.
Sinhgad Fort previously called “Kondhana”, the fort has been the site of many important battles, most notably the battle of Sinhgad Fort in 1670. It was also strategically located at the centre of a string of other forts such as Rajgad Fort, Purandar Fort and the highest mountain of Pune district i.e. Torna Fort.
Given natural protection by its very steep slopes, the walls and bastions were constructed at only key places; it has two gates – the Kalyan Darwaja in the south-east and the Pune Darwaja in the north-east. The top of the fort also offers a mesmerizing view of the Khadakwasla Dam, a dam on the Mutha river which supplies water to Pune.

Rajgad Fort - 4514 ft.

The first capital of Shivaji Maharaj for 25 years, it has a long association with the Maratha history. It lies about 40 km south-west of Pune. Rajgad is famous for its structure. Rajgad has 8km surrounding curtain walls with three wings inside. To the north is Padmavati Machi, to the east is Suvela Machi, & to the south-west is Sanjivanee Machi. It has a central top known as “Balekilla”

Torna Fort - 4604 ft.

Standing 6km west of Rajgad Fort, this high fort another citadel of history. It commands excellent views and is easy to climb. It’s two wings are called Zunjar Machi to the east and Budhla Machi to the south.
Torna is an ancient fort and many caves are located in the nearby hills. In 1646, Shivaji Maharaj won this fort from its Bijapuri general. He repaired it and named it Prachandgad. There are temples of goddess Menghai and Toranjai on the main fort.
