  • “Very well maintained” The Shivneri Fort is approx 45 minutes away from Malshej Ghat and one can club a visit to this fort while visiting Malshej. The fort has been well preserved and the ascend to the top of the fort may be moderately difficult for the elderly. In the monsoon the gulmohar trees are in full bloom and offers a breathtaking view from the fort. Visited June 2015
  • It is the birthplace of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj the founder of Maratha Empire. because of its strategic location his father chose it for security. Not well maintained, but trying to develop it.
  • Best historical place where The great Maratha emperor Shivaji Maharaj was born. There are statues of Jijabai and young shivaji. Small water pond named as Badami talav. Very good place to make your mood good by exploring nature and history. Good to go at any time except rainy season.
  • Best place to go in all seasons.. birth place of great "Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj"
