Located at a distance of 25kms from the main city of Pune, the Sinhagad Fort is a popular picnic spot. Once known throughout the state for its magnificent architecture, Sinhagad Fort has been ravaged by the travails of time which has been a witness to a number of battles.
Inside the premises of the Sinhagad Fort are the Samadhi of Tanaji Malusare, and Rajaram (younger son of Shivaji). Situated atop the fort are the bungalows of Lokmanya Tilak, a great freedom fighter, and G.D. Madgulkarm, a famous Marathi Poet. Sinhagad Fort is one of the places used by National Defence Academy for training purposes.
