Korigad Fort, Lonavala
5 Days4 Nights

Event Overview

Korigad (also called Koraigad, or Kunwarigad) is a fort located about 30 km away from Lonavla in Pune district, Maharashtra, India. The construction likely predates 1500. It is c. 929 m above sea level.

This fort was incorporated by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj into his kingdom along with the forts of Lohagad, Visapur, Tung and Tikona in 1657. In 1818, Col. Prother attempted to capture Korigad. However, even after a prolonged siege he could not make any headway. Finally, by igniting the stored ammunition by means of a loose cannon ball he succeeded and this fort was captured by the British.

Due to the construction of the Mulshi dam, a lake has formed close to the base of the hill on which Korigad stands. There are two lakes at the top of the fort. A temple to its patron goddess Koraidevi also exists along with several smaller temples dedicated to Vishnu and Shiva. The former has been recently renovated and has a 3 foot high Deepmala (lamp tower). The wall of the fort, as well as the gate, is completely intact and one can walk along its entire 2km perimeter. Several ruins of older structures within the fort also exist. It has six cannons - the largest of which, the Laxmi Cannon, is located near the Koraidevi temple.
