“Just an open air lovers spot”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

I liked nothing and disliked everything. Nothing great to look at. So dry. Poor maintainance. All around we could see only lovers sitting. Mere waste.

“Not as expected.”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

I had hoped for more than a skeletal ruin but still enjoyed the visit. The gardens were pretty and reasonably well maintained. I didn't mind the additional costs but 5-100 rupees is a little much.

“The lion fort Gary Ayala Singh Gail's”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

This historic cry of anguish from the great Shivaji wa/s uttered when he was given the news that his forces had entered the famous Fort but he had lost his very dear friend and a fearless leader Tanajirao Angre

The Sinhagarh fort is situated by the picturesque akharakwasla Lake. The world famous National Defence Academy is located just across the lake, and almost each and every cadet who undergoes the training will have a dozen stories to tell about pleasure trips or punishment runs to the Sinhgarh Fort.

The Fort Attracts many tourists. To enjoy it to maximum, one needs to have sufficient and energy to take a trek to its top, which is reasonably challenging but not daunting. Carry your picnic basket and drinks as nothing much is available on top. It is a historical attraction but it is not well maintained. You will have a memorable trip if you are a history buff and enjoy a nice trek and work out .

The view from. Top with a vast lake spread out and the symmetrical National Defence Academy just beyond it , will be suffuicient reason to carry back excellent memories. Carry a good camera to make them yours for ever.

If you can combine it with a visit to NDA it would be perfect..

“Not what I thought”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

This Fort is in the middle of Old Pune and it is very poor and hard to get to, the Fort itself is little more than a ruin, it will cost a foriegner 100INR`s to get in and you will be hassled by women trying to get you to hold their babies so they can take a photograph of them and then they will ask you for 1000INR`s

“Historical delight + nature + away from city rush”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Excellent place for those, who love to be away from the city rush - may be for a while, likes mountain highs and love nature. Be sure that your heart can pump enough to climb up few hundred steps, may be equivalent to a 20+ storied building.
You expect an enjoyable climb, walk on the top, few nature wonders like natural water storage on such a height. Also you come across excellent panorama of the forts & mountains in the Sanhyadri range. For identification, you may need a local guide.
Do enjoy the local eatables like Matka Dahi (curd), seasonal fruits, Bhaji (gram + onion deep fried), etc.
