Take in the military grandeur of Panhala Fort, a fortified structure built on the high Sahyadri Mountain range. One of the largest fortifications on the Deccan Plateau, the 13th-century complex boasts a perimeter of 14 km (9 mi) and 110 lookout posts. In its long lifetime, it has seen battles between Mughals, Marathas, and the British colonial forces, including the legendary Battle of Pavan Khind. Take a guided tour to learn the real history of the place, as the casual visitor will find little information. Bring along plenty of water for the tour, and if you fancy staying over or eating out, explore the hotels and restaurants in the area.
