History of Makrandgad Fort
Constructed during the same time as the Pratapgad Fort, the Makrandgand Fort was built by the Maratha Emperor Shivaji in 1656. The fort served as a link between the Pratapgad and Vatsola forts. In 1818, the British Empire captured the fort but after the Indian Independence, the Makrandgad Fort is controlled by the Government of India.
Close to the fort are the two portions of Madhushikhar and Makrandgad, where the Madhu peak serves as a geographical boundary between the districts of Satara, Ratnagiri and Raigad. The trek to the Makrandgad Fort is an easy one and can be completed within a day.
