Dear Friends, you might have visited this monument many times. But no one knows how the Narayan Peshwa was brutally murdered. Where was that area of seven storied structure where he was chased by hired Pendhari goons running for his life. How many were they?...More

Not a big site. Nothing much is left with the fortress ruin. Not much of descriptive information onsite. Good as a recreational park in a busy area when the weather is good. Ticket price is a little expensive at 200 rupees for foreigners.

It's not much left to see at this place. Highly recommended to go on a cloudy day for a beautiful stroll with history. A little commercialized outside but inside is beautiful.

Wish it was still intact and not destroyed by the fire, it must have been a magnificent sight in those days. Still the main door attracts the most with its rock solid doors which still stand till now
