The King of Forts



History of  forts of Maharashtra is history of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and history of his battle for God, religion, justice &  freedom of Maharashtra.


Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was true king of fort. On his whole life he was ruled on more than 375 forts. Many of them were built-up by him. He build and maintain all types of forts e.g. Ocean Forts, Castles, Mountain Forts and too many mores.

Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj is well- known as all time great worrier. He was fight at time with many enemies and not only fight but also defeat all of them and spread his empire in all directions.

Forts of Maharashtra were backbone of his victorious campaign. Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was excellent general co-coordinator, administrator, leader but one more most important thing he  had that he was master in choosing and using places for battlefield. Forts build by him like Pratapgad, Sindhudurg are victims of his architectural skills. Every fort of Maharashtra has too many memories of his successful and famous battles. Age of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was golden age of history of forts in Maharashtra.           

He founded the Hindu kingdom in the Deccan against all odds, fighting against the mighty Mughals. He inspired and united the common man to fight against the tyranny of Mughal ruler Aurangzeb, by inculcating a sense of pride and nationality in them. At the age of 16, he took a pledge to establish a sovereign Hindu state. His life appears like a fairy tale to children.  He clearly outstands all the rulers and generals of India by the exemplary life he lived and is thus respected by the entire cross section of Indians.  Shivaji is to India what Napolean was to Europe.
