Raigad fort (also known as Raigarh or Kille Raigad) lies in the western mountain range of India called the Sahyadris. Due to its strategic location and strong constuction this was a fort from where shivaji could safely rule his empire. This well preserved fort has many things to see and is an architecture's paradise. It has well engineered structures, artistic monuments, palaces and From this fort one can see other grand forts like Rajgad, Torna and Pratapgad
