Harishchandragad, Malshej Ghat
The Harishchandragad Fort is a historic monument placed in Malshej Ghat that dates back to the 6th Century. Located at an escalation of 1424 metres, the fort provides as a popular Trekking centre for adventurous tourists. This magnificent fort proves to be a challenging trek uphill for nature lovers and adventure junkies alike.
The Harishchandragad Peak nearby is a major tourist attraction. While you’re there, try dropping a coin from here. Given the semi circular rock shape, the coin will not only defy gravity but be blown in the upward direction from the basin due to the atmospheric pressure down there.
The fort, meanwhile, is believed to have been constructed under the Kalachuri Dynasty. There is a beautiful temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu found in the fort premises. The old Buddhist caves found nearby is another major attraction here.
