Together, Sinhgad, Rajgad and Torna make the most significant cluster of historic forts anywhere in Maharashtra.
Rajgad served as the capital of the Maratha Empire during the early years of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaja’s life. This was the first capital of his idea of Swaraj.
Torna was the first fort that Shivaji conquered at the young age of 16 years and thus the seed of the Maratha Empire.
The Sinhgad Fort, originally known as Kondhana is the third and the most significant fort of this trio. It saw more battles and attacks than most forts in the history of the Maratha Empire. Most notable of them was the battle of Sinhgad in 1670 when the warrior “Tanhaji Malusare” recaptured this fort from the Mughals and brought it back to the Maratha Empire. He lost his life in this battle and became immortal in the annals of history.
