Rajgad is one of the forts in the Pune (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pune) district of Maharashtra (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maharashtra) state in India (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/India). The fort is around 1,400 m (4,600 ft) above sea level. Formerly known as Murumdev, it was capital of the Maratha Empire (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maratha_Empire) during the rule ofChhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chhatrapati_Shivaji_Maharaj) for almost 26 years, after which he moved the capital to Raigad Fort (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raigad_Fort). Treasure found at an adjacent fort was used to fortify this hill. The diameter of the fort at the base is 40 km (25 mi) making it difficult for anybody to lay siege to it, adding to its strategic value.
The fort is also known as Prachandagad (huge fort), due to its massive size. In 1646, when Shivaji was 16, he launched his first military attack by capturing Torna fort, paving the way for the great empire. Many battles have been fought on this fort. The fort is truly grand and stretches for couple of kilometers.
