Overview of Sarasgad Fort
On the premises of the Sarasgad Fort are caves, which were once used by the soldiers, a Shiva temple, and around 10 tanks carved in rocks, which provides water throughout the year. From the southern side, there were 111 steps carved from stone leading to the Sarasgad Fort and the door from this side was known as Dindi Darwaja. To improve and repair the fortifications of the fort, the Maratha Emperor Shivaji gave 2000 golden coins and until the Indian Independence, the fort remained in the princely state of Bhor. Presently, the fort is preserved and maintained by the Government of India.
