Bhatkanti: Sangramgad [chakan]



Maharashtra is a state of forts and one famous fort near Pune is Chakan. Last Maratha - British war took place in this fort. Now this fort is in real dilapidated state. The fort is built on the ground, which is a rare kind of fort seen in Maharashtra. Chakan is very famous for Oil Industry and various other industries as it is a part of industrial zone near Pune.

One more place that can be visited in Chakan is the temple where "Varah Avatar" of Lord Vishnu is depicted is the stone carvings. Varah means pig. This was the third avatar of Lord Vishnu. Varah Avatar can be seen very rarely in India. This remains of the carvings are found in an ancient temple of Shri Chakreshwar which is inside the fort itself. These carvings are really worth seeing.
