History:-
Sudhagad is a hill fort situated in Maharashtra. Sudhagad is one of the ancient forts in Sahyadri. It was the glory of Bhor state. Initially, Sudhagad was called as ‘Bhorapgad’. During empire of Shivaji Maharaj this fort was named as Sudhagad. Sudhagad is a huge fort. It is called as the replica of Raigad.

The perimeter of this fort is quite big. There are many lakes on the fort. There is a palace of Pant Sachiv on the fort, where 50 people can stay comfortably. Also there is a temple of Bhorai Devi, where 25-30 persons can be accommodated. Different kind of medicinal plants and trees can be seen in the surrounding forest.

Fascinating Points:-
Bhoreshwar temple:
There is temple of ‘Bhoreshwar’ near the palace. If we move further, we can see a well with a secret door. There are steps from palace to the ‘Bhorai Devi’ temple.

Pachchapur Darwaaja:
If we enter to the hill through this door, we come across a plateau after climbing some distance. To the left is the temple of ‘Siddheshwar’, storehouses of food grains, some cisterns, a lake named “Hawaldar Tale” and “Hattimaal”.On the right hand side we can see natural fortification of the fort.

Takmak Tok of Sudhagad:
After leaving the palace come up with the steps and turn to right hand side of the route. This route goes through ‘Hatti Paga’ (place where elephants were tied).It directly takes us to one peak. This peak is very similar to the cliff “Takmak Tok” on Raigad.

Dindi Darwaaja:
