Little Info about The Fort

Lohagad is very wide spread fort. There are 4 doors to Lohagad from the nearby village -Lohgadwadi. i.e. 'Ganesh Darwaja' , 'Narayan Darwaja' , 'Hanuman Darwaja' and 'Maha Darwaja'.
Some sculptures can also be seen on Maha Darwaja. The famous spot on Lohagad is 'Vinchu Kata' - the scorpion tail. Amazing view of Pawana Dam is also visible from the back side of Lohagad.
The wealth from Surat was brought here under the leadership of Netaji Palkar and kept here for some period.
One can see Purandar on south-east. Sinhagad as well as Tung and Tikona can also be clearly seen. This fort is of Satwahan Era and of great importance in Shivaji's period as to keep watch on Konkan and Bor Ghat. This fort is historically very crucial and must be visited by trek lovers and history lovers.
