Height: 4273 ft (above MSL)
Grade: Easy
Base Village: Korle

Kenjalgad or Ghera Khelanja Fort, is situated on the Mandhardev spur of the Mahadev range eleven miles north-west of Wai. The only entrance is on the north side up a set of a hundred steps running parallel to the line of the scarp till within four or seven feet of the top, when they turn at right angles to it and cut straight into a passage leading on to the top.
The steps are peculiarly imposing and differ from any others in the district. At the foot of the steps is a bastion which evidently flanked a gateway. There are remains of six large and three small buildings, all modern. The head-quarters or kacheri is only marked by a large fig tree. The fort has three large water tanks about forty feet square and six small ones for storage of water and grain. But there is no living spring inside the fort. The largest tank is in the southern face and is quite thirty feet deep. There is a narrow promenade on the ridge at the foot of the scarp and on the north side is a large cave with excellent water and partly used for storage purposes. Khelanja fort is said to have been built by the Bhoj Rajas of Panhala who flourished in the twelfth century
