 About Shivneri Fort

Shivneri Fort is a fort near Junnar which is around 105 km from Pune, Maharashtra, India. It is known as the birth place of Maratha king Shivaji. Shahaji Bhonsale, Shivaji's father, was a general in the army of the Adil Shah, Sultan of Bijapur. He was concerned for the safety of his wife Jijabai during her pregnancy as there was constant warfare going on. He, therefore moved his family to Shivneri fort. Shivneri is a highly defensible location, with steep rocks on four sides and a strongly-built citadel. Inside the fort is a small temple of goddess Shivai Devi, after whom Shivaji was named so.
