Historically, Shivneri is a significant landmark in the history with the Marathas, being the birthplace of the famous Maratha leader, Chhatrapati Shivaji. Shivneri is an important military fortification when Shivaji spent his youth and took lessons in military training. The view from the top of the fort is breath-taking, and the fort offers respite after a tiring climb. forts near pune
