About

The birth place of renowned Maratha King Chhatrapati Shivaji, Shivneri Fort is located near Junnar. The fort which dates back to 17th century used to be a military bastion.  Chhatrapati Shivaji’s father was a general to Sultan of Bijapur. He built this fort to protect his pregnant wife from constant warfare in that time period. Thus Shivaji was born in Shivneri Fort. 

One can see the fort is well protected by steep rocky terrain on four sides. Inside the Shivneri Fort, there is a small shrine for Goddess Shivaji Devi, from whom the Maratha King got the name Shivaji. In the center section of the fort, we can come across water pond. We can also see the statues of Shivaji and his mother Jijapai in southern part of fort. Also the two water springs namely Ganges and Yamuna inside the fort are perennial.
