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 is a popular trekking destination. It is a very famous fort located near two famous hills of 

Maharashtra, Lonavala and Khanadala. Historically, Rajmachi fort was a strategic fort to control Borghat(ghat between Khopoli and Khandala on 

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

 

 

Some Information about the Fort:

 

Rajmachi can be reached by 2 ways, the tough route is from Kondivade village near Karjat and it involves climb-up of about 2000 feet. 

The other route is from Lonavala, which is almost a plain walk of about 15 km. Opposite to Kalbhairavnath Temple, there is another fort 

called Shreevardhan. The fort has lots of secret tunnels leading to battlements. There is a place called Manranjan behind the temple that 

gives one a nice view of the plains. Kal Bhairava temple is situated in the col between Shrivardhan and Manaranjan. Local inhabitants worship 

Kal Bhairava even today. The Buddhist caves on the western slope of Rajmachi plateau (at present known as Kondhane caves) were carved in the 

period around 200 BC. The existence of these ancient caves indicates that Rajmachi had been identified as an important place right from the 

Buddhist period.
