Type : Hill forts 
Fort Range : Pune
District : Pune
Grade : Easy

Purandar fort (1500 Meters) is located approximately 20 miles south-east of Pune and 6 miles south-west of Sasvad. The western side of the fort is a mountainous & towards east is largely a plateau region.
The fort, being quite a huge one was a good place for defence. It had the capacity to house many soldier-troops, foods grains and ammunition which proved sufficient for long durations during wartime. Nonetheless, the fort hosts strong fortified places from which a watchful eye can be kept over surrounding areas.
      Near the foothills of Purandar, is the small village called Narayanpur. In this village is a temple of Lord Mahadev constructed sometime during the Yadav's dynasty. The fort is thus blessed with a history of around 1000 to 1200 years.
