Itinerary

Rajmachi Trek and Camping

 

Trek Information:

  • Rajmachi is located amidst the lush green Shayadri mountains. It is famous for trekking and fireflies. Located 15 km from the beautiful hill station of Lonavala in Maharashtra, the village is also known for its forts. It houses two fortified structures - the Shrivardhan (East) and Manaranjan (West) forts. During the first Anglo-Maratha war, the Rajmachi fort played a strategic role.
  • The fort complex, which is a piece of history in itself, was built by the Satavahanas. The ownership of the fort is traversed across multiple empires. In the latter half of 17th century, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj captured it from the Adilshahi ruler of Bijapur. Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb took control in 1704 only to lose it again in the following year to the Marathas. After the beginning of the Maratha Empire’s downfall, the British captured it in 1818 along with other nearby territories.
  • The village also hosts timeless structures like secret exits, water storage tanks, reservoirs, temples, residential quarters and much more. The offers belonging to the administrative and military wings under the Maratha rule resided here until their defeat.
  • You can also witness a 2-century old massive water reservoir at the southern end of the village. A stone plate is carved within the wall of the reservoir which indicates it was built by Ramrav Narayanrav Deshmukh, Mamlatdar of Danda Rajpuri. On the west of the reservoir, you’ll see an ancient Shiva temple featuring the Hemadpanthi style of architecture. Popularised during the Yadav Dynasty, it uses locally available black stone and lime for construction.
