Some Information about the Fort:

Basic Info: 
The name describes the place itself – The king of all the forts 42 kms from Pune Rajgad is truly the King of all forts. It is famous for its structure The height of Rajgad from sea level is 4250 feet and offers spectacular views of Sahyadri Mountains. Rajgad is surrounded by Sinhagad, Torna, Mangalgad and Purandar. Shivaji Maharaj spent most of his life on this fort. He was here for nearly 30 years. This fort is historically very much important. The fort is 1400 mts above sea level.

Main parts of the fort are:

PADMAVATI LAKE: 
As you approach Padmavati Machi through Gupta-darwaja, we get to see a beautifully constructed lake right in front. The walls of the lake are intact even today. An arch has been constructed from the continuation of the same wall to mark an entry to the lake. However, lot of mire has been collected inside this lake.

GUNJAVANE DOOR:
Gunjavane door is actually a series of three doors. The first door is very simple one however; it has strong fortified places on either side. The second door has a beautifully carved arch. At the last door, below Ganesh plate we find carvings of two trunks of the elephants holding pots upside down. It seems that this door is constructed much before Shivaji Maharaj`s period.

PADMAVATI MACHI:
Facing north this has Padmavati Temple, Padmavati Lake, chor darwaja, Pali darwaja, Gunjavane darwaja, Daru Kothar (storage of arms and ammunition) and remains of the castle.

SANJIVANI MACHI:
This huge, beautiful and royally constructed machi faces west and has 3 layered fortifications making it extremely difficult to conquer. Each layer has a depth of 20 feet and just 2 feet wide which looks like a scary narrow well. This type on construction was to aide guerilla warfare.

SUVELA MACHI:
This is another grand machi facing east with lots of secret routes, doorways, nedha (Mountain hole).

BALE KILLA:
This is the highest part of the fort which has remains of palaces, water lakes and water towers. One can view the whole fort and the vast surrounding expanse.
