    History: This is one of the most interesting forts to visit as it still has its fortification and doorways in pristine condition. The fort dates back to the Satvahan Era and was mainly used to keep a watch on the trade route passing through the Sahyadris. As one starts ascending the fort, 4 massive doors have to be crossed namely Ganesh Darwaza, Narayan Darwaza, Hanuman Darwaza, & MahaDarwaza. The top of the fort is expansive and has a huge lake built by Nana Phadnis. The most interesting feature of this fort is the VinchuKatta, which stretches for almost 2 km and is slightly detached from the fort. The end of this Katta has a bastion which was used for keeping a watch on the region.

     

    As the name itself suggest, the VinchuKatta, when viewed from the top of the fort, resembles a Scorpions Sting.
