Maharashtra is blessed with a glorious history, the advent of Shivaji Maharaj only brightened it all the more. There are hundreds of forts in Maharashtra. Land based forts, Hill Forts, Sea Forts. Unfortunately majority of these forts today are in miserable condition, due to the apathy of the government, the tourists that flock these historical remnants also contribute to the woes. 

The following are the forts existing in Maharashtra, some very popular, while the names of some are even unheard.
