Raigad – Shivaji’s impregnable capital
This is the very heart of Maratha country — Raigad, the capital of Shivaji’s kingdom. Raigad is 3000 feet high above sea level. ‘Rairi’ was its original name. Shivaji’s Coronation Ceremony took place over here. Strategically perched atop a wedge-shaped block of hill, split off from the Western Ghats and inaccessible from three sides. Stories of incredible valour and heroic deeds are etched on every pebble at Raigad.
Raigad remained the capital of the Marathas with its broad gates and magnificent monuments. There was only one pathway leading to the top, and prizes were offered to those who scaled the fort through unconventional methods. Though parts of Raigad are in ruins, yet they inspire an aura of grandeur. Shivaji’s impregnable capital, the place where he was crowed and where he died. Besides the fort, you’ll find his samadhi and the remains of his palace.
For its immense beauty, Raigad remains a hiker’s paradise.
