About Rajmachi

Rajmachi Fort is one of the many historical forts in the rugged hills of Sahyadri Mountains (WesternGhats). It consists of two twin fortresses Shriwardhan Ballekilla and Manaranjan Balekilla, with a wide machi (plateau) surrounding the two Balekillas. Udhewadi is a small village of about 22 houses situated on the machi, at the southern foot of Manaranjan Balekilla of Rajmachi Fort.

A view from the top of the forts of the surrounding hills and valleys is quite mesmerizing. A Shiv Mandir built in the Hemdapanti style of architecture, approximately in the 8th century, on the west end of a big historical water reservoir is worth visiting.Shrivardhan This citadel is the highest point of Rajmachi and its bastions and fortification wall are still in good shape.The remnants hint to a possibility that there might have been a dual fortified wall. The door arch is still standing and there are porches for the gate keepers besides the entrance door. On the approach way to the fort there are two water tanks and a cave. This cave served as an arms and ammunition storage chamber. To the summit of the citadel there is a flag post. The rugged and fascinating pinnacle of Dhak-Bhairi and Shirota lake besides it is visible from here.
