Lohagad Fort

Popularly known as the ‘Iron Fort,’ Lohagad Fort is a perfect convergence of rich historical legacy and exquisite natural beauty. It enjoys an intriguing history under several dynasties, with most of the time spent under the Marathas and a short interval under the Mughals. If you happen to travel to the fort during monsoon, you will see the fort’s top covered with clouds and moss. Though monsoons are an excellent time to visit from a scenic point of view, you must take precautions because the roads and trails leading to it get slippery.

Entry to the fort is possible by four majors Darwajas (doors), out of which Hanuman Darwaja is said to be the oldest. The main premises of the fort houses an old dargah and Laxmi Kothi where the treasure of Nana Phadnavis, an influential Maratha minister, was kept. When visiting the Lohagad Fort, one should not miss the nearby Karla Caves, Aamby Valley City and Bhaja caves.
