Reminders of the historic battles of the Marathas follow you while you stumble across the windswept ruins on the Sinhgad fort. This fort, 25 kms outside Pune, is a beloved weekend spot of Punekars and Mumbaikars alike.

Sinhgad is significant for the memorials of Tanaji Malusare and Chhatrapati Rajaram. Rajaram, the younger son of Shivaji was the third coronated king of the Maratha Empire. Tanaji Malusare was a Maratha general who lost his life in the Battle of Sinhgad.

In March 1640, Tanaji with the help of trained Iguanas and his handful trusted soldiers entered the impenetrable fort. Although Tanaji lost his life in the battle, his party recaptured the fort from the Mughals. Mourning the loss of his favorite general who fought like a lion, Shivaji changed the name of the fort from ‘Kondhana’ to ‘Sinhgad’.

You will find a Bungalow of Lokmanya Tilak, one of the earliest progressive Freedom fighters of India on Sinhgad. Ancient spy holes, rugged stone gates, an ancient temple of Godess Kali, a few abandoned cannons is all that remains of this legendary fort.

They say that if you look carefully, you will find old coins scattered from the wealthier days of Sinhgad. You sit gazing into the beautiful, dangerous valleys and wonder how this place looked a few centuries ago.

A meal consisting of Pithla-Bhakri (Bengal gram flour with fresh spices and Jowar bread) from one of the fort shacks is also one of the highlights of a visit to Sinhgad. Do not miss this favorite picnic spot, especially in the winters, when you can munch on sweet corn and have a memorable day with your pals.

You can take a cab or travel the way trek lovers do, you will be bewitched by the pristine aura of this place. Breathtaking views of the Panshet and Khadakwasla dams, layers of green velvet on all the hills around, Sinhagad is as it was hundred years ago.

  • An awesome historical place to visit. This fort was there at the time of British. They conquered it. These memories are still there you will find old artilleries there. So calm and relaxing. Also road is good and make it a joy ride. Rainy season is best time to visit as everything is green. I have posted both pics...rainy day and sunny day. Its an good escape from city rush.

  • Well it's a great place to trek at and an amazing history behind it. However the Maharashtra govt doesn't like people coming from outside, even for tourism I guess! The people around are not so friendly. Most of the signs and boards are in Marathi! So you better learn Marathi is the attitude most of them carry around making it a real big task to enjoy your holiday. The public transport to the place is particularly not so easy to get, best way would be to hire a self drive. (The point cantonment board will harass you there too) and so you could hire a taxi. Which is easiest. Bus number 50 and 52 from swar gate will get you there! However village people at the fort are quite friendly and helpful.

  • Love the food and the sunset here. The road will test your driving skills. And the hike will test your fitness. Must spent at least 4-5 hours to roam around. Keep yourself well fed with the delicious food available all around the place. Enjoy the task malai kulfi. Keep your self hydrated and keep minimum baggage to feel light. Enjoy!!

  • A serene place with lots of space to have some alone time. Lovely local food also available. A must go for every punekar. Only issue is the access road, only if it was smooth throughout.

  • Historical place. Calm place. Best time to visit Sinhagad is rainy season. Excellent view. Foggy weather in rainy season. Crowdy on weekends.
