SudhagadSudhagad is one of the ancient forts in Sahyadri. It was the glory of Bhor state. Initially, g y g y y

Sudhagad was called as ‘Bhorapgad’. During empire of Shivaji Maharaj this fort was named as Sudhagad. This fort is approximately 590 meters in height. Sudhagad is a huge fort. It is called as 

the replica of Raigad. 

The ‘Thanale’ excavations in this area are nearly 2200 years old. This shows that Sudhagad may be that much ancient. The construction and the geographical significance indicate that some 

great rulers might have constructed the fort. According to the Puranas, Sage ‘Bhrugu’ had stayed here and he had established the temple of Goddess ‘Bhorai’ on this fort. 

Sudhagad was included in ‘Swarajya’ in 1648. It is described in old records as follows: “MalavjiNaik Karake put the ladders in Sakharadara Initially Jadhav and Saranayak both climbed the fortNaik Karake put the ladders in Sakharadara. Initially, Jadhav and Saranayak both climbed the fort 

under the guidance of chieftain ‘Maloji Bhosale’. After that Haibatrao climbed the fort. 25 soldiers went ahead and killed the guards. Further the chief of the fort was killed in anguish and 

the fort was conquered.” 

Shivaji Maharaj renamed Bhorapgad as Sudhagad. Later Sambhaji met Akbar (the rebellious son of Aurangjeb) in the ‘Pachchapur village’ situated at the base of this fort. Annaji Datto, Balaji Aavji Chitnis, his son Aavji Ballal and Hiroji Pharjand were all important persons in ‘Ashta‐j , j j j p pPradhan Mandal’ of Shivaji Maharaj. Sambhaji has killed all of them in ‘Parli’ village near 

Sudhagad.

g y ythe sea waves, lashed at by the torrential Deccan rains, or scorched in the blazing sun, 

stand imposing ramparts and crumbling walls , the last lingering memories of Maharashtra's martial times. Nowhere in the country would you encounter such a 

profusion of forts. And such variety. Sited on an island, or guarding the seas or among the Sahyadri hills, whose zig‐zag walls and rounded bastions sit like a scepter and 

crown amidst hills turned mauve.
