Raigad

  1. 1. र रायगड ड Elevation 820 m (2,700 ft) m (2,700 ft) Location Mahad Raigad – The Capital of Shivaji
  2. 2. Raigad Raigad is a hill fortress situated in the modern day Raigad district of  g y g Maharashtra, India. The Maratha king Shivaji made the fort his capital in  1674 when he was crowned King of a Maratha Kingdom which later  developed into the Maratha Empire eventually covering majority of  p p y g j y modern day India. The fort, which rises 820 metres (2,700 ft) above sea level, is located in the  Sahyadri mountain range. There are approximately 1400–1450 steps  y g pp y p leading to the fort, though today a rope‐way exists to reach the top of the  fort. The fort was looted and destroyed by the British upon siege. Shivaji Maharaj had seized the site, then the fortress of Rairi, from the royal  Shivaji Maharaj had seized the site then the fortress of Rairi from the royal house of the Chandarrao Mores, a junior or Cadet dynasty descended from  the ancient Maurya imperial dynasty. The last More king (or raja) was a  feudatory of the Sultan of ijapur. Shivaji renovated and expanded the feudatory of the Sultan of Bijapur. Shivaji renovated and expanded the  Fortress of Rairi and renamed it Raigad (the King's Fort), the name he gave  it when he selected it for his capital when he founded the Maratha empire.  Raigad, a hill fortress situated in Raigad District of Maharashtra, India was  g , g , capital of Shivaji's kingdom.
  3. 3. Raigad The fort's ruins today consist of the queen's quarters, consisting of six chambers,  with each chamber having its own private commode with plumbing. The main  palace was constructed using wood, of which only the bases of pillars remain.  Ruins of three watch towers can be seen directly in front of the palace grounds  overlooking an artificial lake called Ganga Sagar Lake created next to the fort. It  g g g also has a view of the execution point called Takmak Tok, a cliff from which the  sentenced prisoners were thrown to their death. This areas is now fenced off.].  The fort also has ruins of the market, and it has such structure that one can shop  even while riding or sitting astride a horse. even while riding or sitting astride a horse The king's public Durbar has a replica of the original throne that faces the main  doorway called the Nagarkhana Darwaja. This enclosure had been acoustically  designed to aid hearing from the doorway to the throne. A secondary entrance,  called the Mena Darwaja, was supposedly the private entrance of the royal ladies  of the fort; it leads to the queen's quarters. The erstwhile main entrance to the  fort is the imposing Maha Darwaja. The convoy of the king and the king himself  p g j y g g used the Palkhi Darwaja. To the right of Palkhi Darwaja, is a row of three dark and  deep chambers. Historians believe that these were the granaries for the fort. A statue of Chhatrapati Shivaji is erected in front of the ruins of the main market  avenue that eventually leads to the Jagdishwar Mandir and his own  avenue that eventually leads to the Jagdishwar Mandir and his own Samadhi(tomb) and that of his dog Waghya.
