Harishchandragad is a hill fort in the Ahmednagar district of India. It is known for its scenic beauty and charm. The fort is quite ancient. Remnants of microlithic man have also been discovered here. Its origin is said to have been in the 6th century, during the rule of Kalachuri dynasty.

Altitude: 4650 ft. Approx.

Major Attractions:
Kedareshwar Cave – There is the huge cave of Kedareshwar in which there is a big Shiva Linga, which is completely surrounded by water. Its height from the base is five feet, and the water is waist-deep. here are sculptures carved out in the cave. In the monsoon it is not possible to reach this cave, as a huge stream flows across the way.

KokanKada – This cliff faces west and looks down upon the Konkan. It provides views of the surrounding region.

Caves on Harishchandragad – These caves are spread out all over the fort. Many of these are situated at the foot of Taramati peak and are the place of accommodation. A few are near the temple, whereas some are near the citadel and some far away in the forests
