Raigad is one of the well preserved forts of Maharashtra, here's a set of photo's taken on the fort.
The palace of Shivaji Maharaj once stood here, the wooden roof is long gone, only the stone wall's remain.
The throne of Maratha empire, this a fiber replica, the original is in britan I guess...
This was taken inside a Archway known as the "Nagarkhana" which was the grand entrance to the courtyard. It is said that the acoustics of the courtyard were such that even a faint whisper would echo across the hall.
The Coronation of Shivaji Maharaj happened in this Courtyard. It is said that the ceremony was performed in presence of twenty thousand priests and was precided by the famous priest from varnasi called "Gaga Bhatt"
This is the "Palkhi Darwaja", it is said that this entrance was used exclusively by Shivaji maharaj to access his palace and the courtyard.
The "Jagdishwar Mandir", is the temple dedicated to lord shiva. Its situated some distance on the northen side of the fort way from the palace and the courtyard.
Inside the "Jagdishwar Mandir"
Just behind the temple is one of the most important place on the fort, Its the tomb of Chattarapati Shivaji Maharaj. He died on this fort on 3rd April 1680.
just Behind the Tomb, there is a memorial constucted for Shivaji Maharaj's faithful dog "Waghya". It is said that after Shivaji's death waghya also jumped to his death.... not sure if it is true, but the locals say that it is.
