About Harishchandragad:

The Harishchandragad Fort is quite old and dates back to the 6th century. The caves located all over the fort are carved in the eleventh century. The carvings and the various temples in the caves show that the fort is of the medieval period, as the fort is associated with Nath, Shaiva or Shakta.

Harishchandragad Fort is a splendid architectural monument and tourist attraction located in the Ahmednagar district in the Maharashtra state. It stands majestically on the Malshej region of the Western Ghats and among the most challenging treks of the Ghats.
