  • One of the Famous Fort of Ch. Shivaji Maharaj...Built in 1656.Battle of Pratapgad is most famous in History of Maratha kindom. Fort is stunning, breathtaking,beautiful & historical.After unsuccessful meeting with sardar Afjal Khan,Shivaji killed him at this place which make him very famous. It's 30 km.away from Mahableshwar. You can take guide and taxi from Mahableshwar. August / Sept. is the best time to visit. Because you can play hide and seek with clouds,fog,rain and sunshine. Greenery is amazing. Ghats are stunning. Mahadev temple located at the northwest side of fort is historical and is surrounded by sheer cliffs with the drops of 250 meters. Pratapgad was an important stronghold, had a large garrison, and could suppress much of the country around Wai. A 17 feet high equestrian bronze statue of Shivaji was unveiled by Jawaharlal Nehru.  The fort is currently owned by M.P. Ch.Udayan Raje Bhosale, the heir to the former Satara princely state.
