    Harishchandragad is taller than Torna. It is right across Kalsubai.

    • Chaitanya Kamath says:

      Yes. Harishchhandra Gadh is taller and way too beautiful. Which is just 15 mins away from my home.

      • TheOnlyIndianHistoryNerdInUSA says:

        Lucky you! I have always longed to visit the beautiful mountains of Maharashtra and climb the forts of my favorite king of all time and my inspiration, Shivaji Maharaj, but I have never even set foot in India for 6 years – I was born and raised in America. I have a friend from Mahableshwar and goes every two years, and I always beg him to bring back pictures of Pratapgad for me. Unfortunately, among the younger generation, my friend and I are some of the only ones left who still have pride for our ancestral country of India :-(.

        So I hope that you’re really appreciating and taking advantage of the beautiful part of Maharashtra that you are in!
