Raigad Fort

Fort in Raigad Fort

This enthralling hilltop fort served as Shivaji’s capital from 1648 until his death in 1680. The fort was later sacked by the British and some colonial structures added, but monuments such as the royal court, plinths of royal chambers, the main marketplace and Shivaji’s tomb still remain – it’s worth an excursion. Guides (₹500) are available within the fort complex.
