Mahipatgad is situated in Ratnagiri district, near Khed.Height of Mahipatgad is 3090 feet.

At around 12 miles from Khed the mountain range of Rasal-Sumar and Mahipatgad are situated. Mahipatgad is the tallest amoung these three forts.Way to Mahipat passes through the forest.Top of this fort is a plateau covered with a forest.

There are lot of ruins of old structures in these woods , but it is really challenging to find one , as it is spread over 120 acres.

There were totally 6 gates to enter this fort.

    * Pusati Darwaja towards East
    * Khed Darwaja towards South
    * Shivganga Darwaja towards West
    * Kotwal Darwaja towards North
    * Laal Devdi Darwaja towards North East

 Now we can see only few ruins of these gates.
