Rajmachi is a quaint village in the Karjat region of Maharashtra. Rajmachi peak has two fortified structures - the Shrivardhan fort and Manoranjan forts, built by the warrior-king Shivaji during the 17th century. Situated 17 km from Lonavala, the fort was a strategic one, overlooking Borghat which was a historical trade route. The monsoons are a good time to visit Rajmachi, when the entire route is covered in a blanket of green with patches of wildflowers.
