Create an itinerary including Sinhagad Fort
Perched on a remote hill, Sinhagad Fort served as the site of many historic battles, including the famous 1671 Battle of Sinhagad. The carvings found within the fort's temple suggest the structure could have been built 2,000 years ago. Take an uphill climbing route, along which locals sell boiled eggs and salted butter. See the military stables, old wells, historic gates, a brewery, a statue of the god Hanuman, and a temple dedicated to Hindu goddess Kali. Look for the bust of Tanaji--a general who lost his life in the Battle of Sinhagad--and a tomb of his younger brother Rajaram. Nature lovers will enjoy views of the surrounding mountains, flights of different spices of birds, and a rose garden. A visit to Sinhagad Fort represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Pune trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • Track your way up… amazing view and experience.. would sure track more during winters it makes it more interesting view. Start early morning for the best experience. Normally good time to start tracking is 6am. Recommend
  • Place is awesome but visitors need to think about cleanness and stay disciplined while visiting such historical places. First upon they need to understand this not a picnic spot it is a place to learn lots of historical events happened here. Visitors must have to follow some disciplines while parking cars and bike and also about their behavior.
