Gherakilla Manikgad

Manikgad is a mountain fortress and temple in Gherakilla Manikgad, India.
 
Located among rolling hills, the temple is a popular hiking spot. Manikgad was built to oversee the trade route from Maval (Pune) to coastal ports.
 
Only ruins of the fort remain. A big rock-cut cistern on the fort is called the “Darya take”. A small Shiva Linga and a few small rock-cut cisterns are present.
