Purandar Fort

This place holds many pages in history. Records date back more than 650 years with several rulers fighting for their holds over this 4500 feet altitude fort in the Western Ghats mountain range. A record even notes German prisoners in this fort when it was in the powers of the British.

I know these are not the best snaps from this majestic place, but these photos were taken way back when I didn't have an SLR. The many aspects of this fort WILL be covered by me whenever I get another chance to visit the giant again. Until then, here's the archive I have…

  5. Desolate! It reminds me of strongholds mentioned in Lord of the Rings.

    Yes, nature rules over this old work of man, as it will always and forever rule mere mortal efforts.
