About Visapur Fort:
Visapur Fort in Lonavala, compared to its Twin brother Lohagad, is larger and at a higher altitude. You will get to see within the fort are a lot of old houses, caves, cisterns of water and a decorated arch. These two roofless buildings surrounded by outer or veranda walls said to have once been Government offices. People call the ruins present of a large stone-built house as the Peshwa’s palace. Youll get to see a lot of small temples of Lord Hanuman (Maruti) across the fort. They say Lord Hanuman was likely the patron deity of Visapur fort.
History: The long history of Visapur is ripe with conflicts between the Marathas and the Mughals. In 1818, it came under the rule of British ColnelProthe. But this was only after it was passed to and fro between the Mughals and Marathas. The consistent wars left gaping holes in the fort’s interiors.
Nearby Attractions: Lohagad Fort, Bhaje Caves, Pawna lake, Hanuman Temples
