Gates of Sinhgad

Sinhgad fortress located 30 kms from Pune is an hill fort with several gates. One of the prominent gate is Pune Darwaz.



After you enter through this gate, one can across one more gate of the fort.



There is another prominent gate is Kalyan Darwaz at the other end of this huge fort and unfortunately I missed this. In the area inside the fort there are also beautiful flowery plants.

I'd never expect to see lovely flowers within the walls of a fort! That was a pleasant surprise.

Enjoyed seeing the old forts, but loved the pretty yellow foliage.

Nice photos of the fort. I wonder what is the orange flag or cone at the top of the 2nd photo.

Have a good weekend.

I would relish going through those shadowy gates!

Gemma Wiseman said...

The shadowy gate entrance is so charming. Like a dreamy invitation to step back in time. And love the mass of flowering yellows. Beautiful photos.

Sad to see the fort in ruins but it does make a lovely subject for photography and wandering about in and the golden flowers add splendour.

Happy Sunday.

It looks like a nice place to visit, especially with those brilliant yellow blooms. I am, actually, going to Pune in the next week or so to see a Royal Caribbean friend who is home for two months leave. Doubt I'll make it to this fort, though.

My Monday Mellow Yellows are of Indian women in colorful saris.
