Rajgarh enjoys a unique position among the hill forts of Maharashtra. It possesses all the salient features of fort architecture which are peculiar to the Deccan region. Situated on one of the spurs of the Sahyadri Mountains known as Murum hill, region is about 35 kms south-west of Pune. The fort is at a height of approx. 1300 metres from sea-level and comprises three terraces (machis) and a citadel (Balekilla). There are four gates called Gunjavane, Pali, Alu and Kaleshwari or Dindi gate. The first two gates lead to the Padmavati machi, the third to the Sanjivani and the last to the Suvela machi. Rajgarh looks like a winged bird flying in the sky.
