The Pratapgad Fort

Obviously, the Pratapgad fort is the main attraction of the place. The fort has three parts:

Upper fort: Square in shape, the upper fort has 180 meters of walls running on all sides. The Marathas have built a Shiva Temple inside the upper fort.

Lower fort: The south-eastern part of the fort is known as the lower fort. The lower fort has walls running from 320 meters in length to 100 meters in width. Eleven meters high bastions were built as the defence to this part of the fort.

Afzal Tower: It is believed that Afzal Khan was beheaded by Shivaji. Later, Shivaji instructed to bury his head at that certain place and erect a tower to commemorate his victory. Thus, Afzal Tower was built, and it still stands tall, silently reinstating the power of the Marathas in their heydays.
