Pratapgad Fort – An Enchanting Tourist Destination

I Pratapgad Fort is a huge fort situated in the in districts of Satara in Maharashtra, India.  I am famous for the site of the Battle of Pratapgad and this makes me a popular and famous tourist destination. I am located 15 kilometers from Poladpur as well as 22 kilometers from Mahabaleshwar that is a popular hill station in Maharashtra. Also, I am above 1,080 meters from the sea level.

The best thing about me is that I am built on a place which looks like the road between the villages of Par and Kinesvar. My historical journey starts with Shri Shivaray near Mahabaleshwar. After sometime Shivaray noticed Pratapgad and took immediate decision to construct me as a fort. If he would have not taken the decision I was not made a fort today.
