Detailed overview

The Harishchandragad fort is a hill fort which is located in the Ahmednagar district of Maharastra. Remnants of Microlithic man have been discovered here. The various Puranas (ancient scriptures) like Matsyapurana, Agnipurana, and Skandapurana include many references about Harishchandragad. This hill fort has played a major role in the safekeeping of the surrounding region. Its origin is said to have been in the 6th century, during the rule of Kalachuri dynasty. The Marathas captured this fort in 1747.

Konkan Kada is one of the biggest cliffs of the Sahyadri, fascinating many people from years together. Facing towards the Konkan side, the cliff looks down upon the Konkan with a breathtaking view of the surrounding region. Not only vertical, but it has an overhang, almost like a cobra’s hood.
