The Story of Hirkani Baai
The Raigad fort is near Pune and was very important to Shivaji’s kingdom. It was the capital of his empire, and his coronation took place in Raigad in 1674. The fort is in the Western Ghats or the Sahyadri mountain range in western India. The fort itself is on a mountain top and there is a village at the base of this mountain. Steep Fort walls guard the fort from all sides. There is a steep vertical drop on one side and the generals decided not to build a wall. They did not think any human could possibly scale the vertical drop to enter the Fort without notice. The drop seemed enough protection. The villagers from the foothill came up to the fort with their wares to sell. They would stand by the main fort door when the man in charge (maval) would open it allowing the villagers inside. The gates were closed at sunset and would not open until the next morning. Those were the orders of Shivaji Maharaj.
