The hidden wonder of Panhala fort. One must walk for about 1/2 kms . Road is tarred but Vehicles are not allowed. In the evening there are no street lights. This is one of the best maintained structures on the fort. It seems to be observation post which gives a 270 Deg view of the valley below. A ideal place for viewing sunset. Enroute to this point you will come across mile stone informing about the start of epic journey of Ch Shivaji Maharaj to Vishal gadh Fort. Time spent - 30 mins. No guide is available.…

This place is known as Pisati Buruj and it is at the end of Westside. Buruj is intact and in much better condition. It offers you a good valley view. the path towards Buruj goes through the forest area and good way for a walk. Cars are not allowed till Buruj.

Initially one may get feel that the place is of a great historic importance, which it is. But not sure of it's archaeological value.

Indeed spell bound by the view. Had to walk for over a kilometre on a tarmac road to get to the place. Had to pass the space research centre and BSNL exchange en route. A must go if you go to Panhala. The view atop the watch tower is phenomenal, it gives you a 270 degree view of the west, the north and the east of the fort. One can see the mountain ranges and passes in between, as well as the science city and farmlands on the opposite. View radius is about 20km on a clear day.…

Excellent viewing point on the top of the hill. The whole expanse of Kolhapur can be seen from here. It's generally very windy. Note: it requires quite a walk and there are no lights on the way through a dirt track.
