1 Day

Event Overview

Lohagad “Iron fort” is one of the many hill forts of famous emperor of Maharashtra Chatrapati Shivaji. Located in Lonavala which is just a couple of hours from Pune, Lohgad is one of the best forts to visit during any time of the year. This fort divides the basins of the Indrayani and Pavna and is situated on a wide range of the Sahyadri.. .Situated close to the hill station Lonavala and 52 km (32 mi) northwest of Pune, Lohagad rises to an elevation of 1,033 m (3,389 ft) above sea level. Historical records show that in the later Peshwa period, Nana Phadnavis (1742-1800 AD) built several structures in the fort. The fort was under the Maratha empire for the majority of time, with a short period of 5 years under the Mughal empire.
