42 kms from Pune Rajgad is truly the King of all forts. It is famous for its structure. Rajgad is surrounded by Sinhagad, Torna, Mangalgad and Purandar. Shivaji Maharaj spent most of his life on this fort. He was here for nearly 30 years. This fort is historically  very much important. The fort is 1400 mts above sea level and a difficult one to climb.

          The Padmavati temple which is very old is the only place where one can rest. Sanjivani Machi, Padmavati Machi and Suvela Machi are places one can see over here.  One can also see 'Chor Darawaja' and 'Pali Darwaja' on the machi. It takes  takes about 6 hrs to reach Torana from Sanjivani Machi. Suvela Machi can be considered as the strongest place on the fort.
