Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj

Camera-Critters at a favorite fort of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj

For this week’s theme, I would like to take a walk down the memory lane whilst trekking to Shivaji Maharaj’s fort i.e. The Raj machi Fort.

Do you know who was Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj?

Shivaji was born a warrior-king in the 16th century. With the best skills, a sharp mind and a vision of free India, he toppled many baddies throughout his tenure and gave birth to the Maratha Empire.

The forts he created in his time still exist in the 21st century. The architecture is still considered to be marvelous. Unfortunately, the fort is not preserved like it should have.

But still, it is decent enough. Now, one of his forts has become a popular trek spot. This fort is the Rajmachi Fort within Maharashtra.

I too have gone along with friends to check out this architectural marvel and pay tribute to the king!

Just a heads up, if you happen to trek during the monsoons, be ready to find various animals and insects that roam around freely.

We found this little creature en route almost as if it were following us. My friend had a DSLR and couldn’t help but click its image in a still pose.

That’s when I thought of sharing this special image with all of you.
