Bhopatgad Fort

Bhopatgad Fort is situated 20 km away from Jawhar. This is a fort like structure built by Chhatrapati Shivaji.

The outer wall is made up of a dilapidated rock face and the chambers inside are darkened. Shivaji used to hold official meetings here. There are four pairs of foot prints on a smooth rock face just before the fort. Legend says that those are foot steps of Lord Ram, his wife Sita and their children Lava and Kusha.

This picturesque viewpoint offers the sight of several mountains half covered by the clouds.
