Pratapgad Fort

Pratapgad, one of the most famous forts in Maratha history and is situated at a distance of 25 km from Mahabaleshwar and a exhilarating ride gets you up to the top where the fort is perched. The historic Pratapgad Fort was built by the Maratha ruler Chhatrapati Shivaji in 1656, to control the rebellious rulers of the nearby Javali Basin.

Perched at a height of 900 meters above sea level, it is famed for the historic encounter between Shivaji and the Bijapuri General Afzal Khan.
It is said that Emperor Shivaji, in spite of being attacked by a tiger killed Afzal Khan. It is believed that Shivaji was blessed with a shining sword at the temple of Goddess Bhavani located here.
