Sinhagad Fort, Pune

4.4
#2 of 303 in Things to do in Pune
Perched on a remote hill, Sinhagad Fort served as the site of many historic battles, including the famous 1671 Battle of Sinhagad. The carvings found within the fort's temple suggest the structure could have been built 2,000 years ago. Take an uphill climbing route, along which locals sell boiled eggs and salted butter. See the military stables, old wells, historic gates, a brewery, a statue of the god Hanuman, and a temple dedicated to Hindu goddess Kali. Look for the bust of Tanaji--a general who lost his life in the Battle of Sinhagad--and a tomb of his younger brother Rajaram. Nature lovers will enjoy views of the surrounding mountains, flights of different spices of birds, and a rose garden. A visit to Sinhagad Fort represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Pune trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • Cooler than the Pune city located about 1500 m above sea level. Roads are pretty bad from the foothills about 30 minutes car shook quite a bit. Attractions is the old gate around the landscape is great. Seen squirrels, donkeys or carrying luggage. Citadel ruins are located, can be recommended.

  • Best place to hangout with Friends. It is best option for small treks on weekends. The fort has a significant history and it is worth a visit. You will love the nature and it's beautiful views. You have a variety of food items served by the local people. The fort also has a by road option with trekking the fort. You will enjoy the most in monsoon the rides get bumpy but it view worth it. Do visit.
  • A good place to hang out with Friends and/or Family.. Recommend to visit the Fort via Trekking.. It takes just over an hour to trek to the top.. You have many places in between to have rest and refreshments.. The fort itself is clean enough.. The views offered by the spot, and the breeze of air in open areas of the fort make it a really beautiful moment to spend.. Recommend Trekking early in the Morning, so that you can enjoy the Sunrise.. If planning to visit late, visit the vehicle by vehicles and enjoy the Sunset.. Snacks, food, refreshments are good too.. If you like trekking, this Fort is worth a Trek at least once..
  • A must visit destination if you want to experience the nature from big heights... This place makes it a great choice for lovers of beautiful mountains and soothing nature.. you get a lot of small food stalls on the top selling corn, fruits, juices, ice cream, tea, coffee, etc। So you don't need to worry about carrying food stuff over there... Road network to this place is not so good..
  • Beautiful place to view the sunrise. We had went through bike. The roads are really in a very bad condition. You'll have to ride very carefully. But the view you get while going is just wow. We never reached the top of the fort as both times we spent time near the start of the fort since we got a very beautiful secret kind of place as many people don't go there. Also the bhajjis and coffee over there are very good and you can enjoy the place and weather with those. Visit it during winter so that the fog will make the place more beautiful
  • Really a Wonderful Historical place to visit. Take a brisk walk around many places on top of the mountain and you have a pure Marathi village lunch at small huts and take some rest under the hood of trees where the wind gives you peaceful rest. The lunch is little bit expensive but taste should appreciate because you cannot have like appetite any where else. At the end you have to walk down before sunset and carry a bag of beautiful memories along with you. Should visit those who have not..
