Sinhagad Fort, Pune

(4.3/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Sinhagad Fort into our Pune trip builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Its ok. History is interesting, but nothing much to see at the place. Good for trekkers, one will enjoy. If you are lucky you will find a cloudy day else fun reduces on a sunny day. Avoid summer afternoon as you will seldom find shade. Roads to the fort from highway are not soo good, with really patchy roads at some places.
  • History meets nature meets adventure. Easily the best place to go out with your buddies for 1 day adventure hike. Easily accessible from pune city around 20 km in distance. You can take bus or rent a car. You can use vehicles to go at a top or hike from PAYTHA or bottom of fort to top. Its around1.5hr hike and its little steep in the end. Enjoy traditional Maharashtrian delicacies like Pithala Bhakri or Kanda Bhaji with Curd in earthen pots. You can have sweet corns, fresh seasonal fruits if you are looking for quick bites, there is a lot to see on fort so I suggest you keep time to see Memorials and historical places on the fort. Remember non veg and alcohol is prohibited on the fort, so is loud music. enjoy responsibly and keep fort plastic free.
  • A historical place near to pune. Blessed by nature visit specially in rainy seson. Good facility of food and parking. Pithal bhakari and khekadabhaji is famous.
  • Great historical places.Learn about Maratha Sardar Narveer Subedar Tanaji Malusare..
  • This place is for those who want to stay away from from city crowd.. just 40km from city one hour by bike. But soo relaxing and full greenery.. its soo much fog there you can't see anything After ten meters.. there are many small hotels. Which serve onion bhajji. Bhakri sabji.. it's really nice. Weekend it will be too crowded .
