View from the top is mesmerizing!

Beautiful place with religious significance related to Sant Ramdas. Even if one is not religious, it's beautiful to walk around and enjoy the beautiful view of lake and mountains surrounding the fort!Vehicles can go up to a designated parking area beyond which one has to walk on foot, climb around 100 steps before reaching the fort gate. From there it's a plain walk around the fort. Also even if it is raining there are plenty of place on the fort to take shelter. So it's absolutely safe.

A kool destination to travel in monsoon

We visited it in the month of November. Couldn't have had a better time. Monsoon is definitely the best time of year to visit. The centre is basically Samadhi place of Samarth Ramdas Swami. I have not found its interesting but I had figured out and Spend all time on the outer edges of the fort for the views. The look of the dam was pleasing and made you feel the calmness of water.Overall its a good experience but it will be better if you plan it during monsoon ..

Fort and a learning Centre.

Sajjanghad Fort is around 20-25 km from Satara district. Public vehicle easily is easily available.The fort is not much high in the mountains and you just have to climb a few stairs to reach it.The fort now has become a learning and religious centre. It hosts the Samadhi of Shri Swami Samarth and few schools of Vedic teaching. The villagers have put up few stalls for food and articles to buy.

Peace and memorable

Such a nice place to relax. Peace of mind, the journey to the fort is even more memorable. If you live riding a bike, try that. It feels amazing to drive on the roads to the fort.
