Type : Forest forts Fort Range : Mahabaleshwar-Koyna
District : Satara Grade : Medium
      Bhairavgad comes under the regions of Koyananagar. The significance of forts here is that they are away from the actual range and hence are invisible from long distance. The main attraction of these forts is the dense forest. This fort has been declared as ‘sanctuary’. All the villages once situated are moved out from the sanctuary. Buses are available to reach at the base village.

Bhairavgad (Satara)
History :
      The construction on this fort indicates that this fort was mainly used to keep check on the surrounding area. However no mention of this fort is available in the history.
Fascinating Spots :

      There is a very big temple on the fort. This temple is well built and very beautiful. In the temple 2-3 ft long idols of Goddess Bheri, Goddess Tula and Shree Vaghjai are seen. We find many carvings on this temple. Tulsi Vrindavan and Shivling are seen in front of the temple. 2-3 pillars are also seen. Opposite to it there is another temple of Lord Shiva.
From the temple the descending way takes us at the bastions of the fort. Further we see the remnants of the entrance. From here take left and come at backside of the fort. Here there are two water reservoirs. This water is potable. From the fort we can see the dense forests of Koyana. Top of the fort is not very big. So 2 hours are enough to see the fort. If we stand before the temple and descend down the right side way for 5 minutes, we come near a water reservoir. However, here water is available only till the month of March.
