Brief Introduction abt Raigad:-
Height:Abt 2900 ft
Time:~2 hrs from Pachad near Mahad
"Fort Raigad is much more than a mere tourist spot. It is a sacred place of pilgrimage, which has left an imprint of the grand vision of Hindavi Swarajya as cherished by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj."
Fort Raigad was the capital of the most illustrious Maratha sovereign,nurtured by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.It is a monument of his prophetic vision of Hindavi Swarajya.
The first main place on the fort is the main door - 'Maha Darawaja'. After the main door, Ganga sagar and some remains of the palace can be seen. Hirkani Buruj can also be seen and one don't believe the heroic deeds of Hirkani (she came down the fort bare footed at night from this point). The famous 'Takmak Tok' or place for life punishment - is on the north side. Its thrilling to stand near Takmak Tok which is always with full of breeze. One can see the ammunition store here. The market place on the fort is worth to watch and history lovers spends time here recalling the great warrior.
The statue of 'Shivaji Maharaj' is situated at the center of the fort. The Samadhi of Maharaj is also very beautiful and one can remember Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and his contribution and full dedication to Swaraj. The other places to visit on the fort are Jagdishwar Temple, Koli Lake, Shirkai Temple etc. The view of 'Lingana' is also wonderful.
