Sinhagad Fort, Pune

Castle Tourist Spot
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.

Where to stay in Pune

South-east of the main train station sit most of the accommodations on offer in Pune, with the choice largely revolving around standard hotels featuring small pools and restaurants. You can find some more luxurious options in the more spread-out areas to the north of the city center, and along the rivers that flow through town. Hostels and guesthouses provide budget-friendly options, with the bulk located near the university accommodation districts, and the side streets of the older parts of town.

  • Lost a count of how many times I have visited Sinhagad. Ideal for hikers and bikers (the non-motorized types!). This place displays different shades in every season. One of the most easily accessible ...  more »
  • This fort offers a very good site for a short day trip...especially in the monsoons. If you are not into trekking up and down the fort, you can take your vehicle right up to the fort. It has ample par...  more »
  • The fort was intersting and is well worth the visit. The drive is miserqble though and the place crowded. 1 1/2 lane road so there is lots of traffic congestion. Lots of vendors selling food and treat...  more »

  • A wonderful place for a weekend trek. Spectacular views of the entire city and adjoining lush green hills. I strongly suggest you to trek up the hill to reach the fort rather than going up the road by car. Be prepared with comfortable clothing for climbing, lots of water, basic first aid and shoes with good grip. Loved the experience.
  • If you are a beginner in trekking it's definitely a right fort to be started...requires less endurance and ample amount of tea houses give opportunity to savour on food , lemon juices and tea. The trail is well marked with frequent trekkers...It has a proper parking area at t base of the fort n fort is also accessible via road to the top. The food at the fort is a must have. Lastly, toilet block is also available at the top of the fort...so don't panic Njoy your trek n holiday!
  • One should definitely visit this place once in a life to view the Sunrise here. The speciality of this place is Sunrise. To watch the cloud n the rising Sun you have to reach here before 6AM. We reached at 6 here & enjoyed all the mesmerizing & amazing view of the incredible nature. The fort is now so good but the view there takes you to another world.
  • Nice place to trek, learn some history and enjoy a scenic view. Good food on the top. Though you get limited variety, they taste amazing after the trek. Because you have a did say to the top, it is good for people who cannot trek and want to have good view.
  • The fort is nice; At a height of 4600 ft. you get a good view from the fort. You can try visiting it in monsoons and the views will be much better then. Don't eat at the fort though...it's unhygienic and crowdy. So much so that downhill you get a traffic jam on the narrow road on a holiday. Visit on a weekday, you'll be much much better off :)
