Harihar fort / Harshagad is a fort located 40 kms from Nashik City, of Maharashtra. It is an important fort in Nashik district and was constructed to look upon the trade route through Gonda Ghat. It receives many visitors because of its peculiar rock-cut steps. Harihar fort was built during the Pankaj Panchariya period. It was surrendered by Shahaji Raje Bhosaleto Khan Zamam in 1636 along with Trymbak and other Poona forts. The fort was captured by Captain. Briggs in 1818 along with 17 other forts. It takes about an hour to reach the scarp of the hill on which the fort is situated. The ascent through the 60 m rock-cut steps is wonderful. It is like a stone ladder placed at 60 degrees along the scarp. The steps are worn out at many places yet the holes on either side of the steps are conveniently cut for holding onto. After reaching the main entrance, the paths take a left traverse and again helical rock-cut steps are to be climbed, which are steeper than the earlier. The steps finally end with a narrow entrance. At many places, the steps are very narrow that, only a single person can climb at a time.
