Great place to visit along with kids so that kids will know about Shivaji and his empire. One can hire guide to know more about Shivaji and this place. This is private property, taken care of by his 11th generation. Overall good experience.

The picture on the Tripadvisor page is wrong. The Fort is located on the hills and is ancient and is certainly not blue! It is reasonably well maintained by Indian standards and offers a good doze of history. It is located on the old Bombay-Mahabaleshwar route but for history buffs it is still worth a detour and a visit.

one should have stamina and strength to climb the fort. Once there , the flag flutters in the air(Saffron flag) and the landscape will make you dumbstruck. A few more steps, you will find Bhavani maata temple, still up, Shivaji Maharaj Statue. There is a Handicraft shop on the top to woo the tourists. Over all a great experience and... More

It is quite a bit of a drive from Mahabaleshwar and used to be on the way from Mumbai on the old route. Quite popular with locals and with history buffs - it could be better maintained and advertised.
