The only fort which was considered before Raigad for establishing as the capital of Shiv swarajya, Sudhagad is a gigantic fort with a huge plateau atop.  Tactfully fortified this was one was one of the mightiest and inaccessible fort of the time.

There still exists a spacious Wada of the Pant Sachiv of the Sudhagad region. Its in bad condition due to lack of maintenance.

A well built temple of Bhoraidevi is the only place for shelter atop. There is deepmal in front of the temple. Few remnants of Tulsi Vrundawan lay in the vicinity.
