About:

 

Rajmachi : (Udhewadi) is a small village in the rugged mountains of Sahyadri in India. The

fortification at Rajmachi consists of two forts , namely Shrivardhan fort and Manaranjan

Fort.Rajmachi fort was a strategic fort to control Borghat(ghat between Khopoli and Khandala on

Mumbai-Pune route) which was a historical trade route.

 

Kondana caves : in Karjat are a group of 16 Buddhist caves, located 33 km north of Lonavala .

Records suggest that these caves were excavated sometime during the 1st century BC. The Chaitya

or the prayer hall has one inscription which gives information about the donors. One can reach the

cave by climbing down from the Rajmachi village. These are rock-cut Buddhist caves with a stupa,

chaitya, vihara, and sculptures. It is believed that during an earthquake   the early 1900s, much of

the front, floor and stupa were damaged. This left the pillars in the chaitya suspended like huge

stalactites from the ceiling
