Sarasgad Fort

Sarasgad is a fort near the border of Pali village. Pali is one of the Ashtavinayaka sites and the Ganapati is known as 'Ballaleshwar'. Sarasgad Fort can be identified by its four pinnacles and thus was mainly used as a watch place to check the surrounding region. The construction of the fort is now not in a good condition but the huge rock steps are something to be seen. There are two routes which lead to the top of this fort from Pali. On the top is the Shiva temple providing an excellent panoramic view of all the mountain ranges surrounding this area. Sudhagad, Sankshi fort and Tail Baila can be easily viewed from the top of Sarasgad. There are many caves which were used for soldiers and other purposes because the fort has very little area available on its top. There are around ten tanks carved in rocks. The door from this side is known as 'Dindi darvaja'.
