"Fort Raigad is much more than a mere tourist spot. It is a sacred place of pilgrimage, which has left an imprint of the grand vision of Hindavi Swarajya as cherished by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.“
When Shivaji Maharaj first saw the place, he could not help exclaim:
“This Fort is formidable. All sides appear as if chiselled from a mountain of solid rock. Not even a blade of grass grows on the sheer vertical rock. This is a paragon to house the throne.”
Upon occasional failure of electrical supply, the backup generators take care to complete the trip. In addition, the entire Ropeway can be operated manually. There is an additional provision of a bi-cable Rescue Ropeway to rescue the Stranded passengers safely in case of eventuality. Maintenance work of Ropeway is carried out at regular intervals of time.
