DESCRIPTION ABOUT THE PLACE :
Torna Fort or Prachandagad is tallest fort in Pune district. This fort is believed to have been constructed by the Shaiva Panth, followers of the Hindu god Shiva, in the 13th century. A Menghai Devi temple, also referred to as the Tornaji temple, is situated near the entrance of the fort.
In 1643, Shivaji Maharaj captured this fort at the age of sixteen, thus making it the first fort in what would become the Maratha Empire. Shivaji renamed the fort Torna, and constructed several monuments and towers within it.
