Sinhagad meaning 'Lion Fort' (Marathi: सिंहगड), Previously called Kondhana. It is a fort located near the city of Pune, Maharashtra, India, situated on a hill which rises 800 meters above the surrounding countryside. The fort's location has been strategically important since at least the 14th century and has been the site of many important battles.

One of the more famous battles was the recapturing of the fort by 'Tanaji Malusare', a general for Chhatrapati Shivaji in March of 1670. It was after this battle that the Kondhana fort was renamed 'Sinhagad' after Tanaji Malusare, whose nickname was 'the lion' (Sinha). Having spearheaded the attack and fighting valiantly Tanaji's life was lost in capturing this important fort.

IYou can see Tanaji's samadhi on the fort. The bungalows of Lokmanya Tilak and famous Marathi Poet G.D. Madgulkar ( Ga Di Ma ) are also located on the fort. Dev Take - famous tank with sweet and cold water - is popular amongst the tourists. Sweet curd, Buttermilk, Kanda bhaji and Pithle-Bhakari of Sinhagad is the main attraction for the people. The samadhi of Rajaram Maharaj can also be found on this fort.

The tower of Doordarshan -Mumbai is also there on Sinhagad. This tower provides reception to Pune region. You can see the Panshet, Khadakwasla and Varasgaon dams and Torana fort also. The view of entire Pune city looks wonderful.
