About Kalavantin Durg

Kalavantin Durg (also known as Kelve Teen Durg) History: The fortress is a part of the grand Sahyadri Range located between the present day, Panvel and Matheran at an elevation of 2300 feet above sea level. Built-in or around 500 BCE, this stronghold was abandoned, due to lack of freshwater, to the neighbor, Prabalgad. The only known history, today of this place is that the fortress was named after the then Queen, Kalavantin. The major attraction of this fort is the steps leading to the pinnacle which have been carved out from the belly of the mountain itself, which at an elevation of 2300 feet and at 500 BCE is an engineering masterpiece. As compared to all the fortresses built around the world, this fortress comes without any safety fence or ropes, thus giving it the tag of one of the most dangerous places in the world.
