Gorakhgad is a hill fort in Maharashtra. Gorakhgad and Machindragad are twin forts in the Thane district of Maharashtra. Gorakhgad is situated at an elevation higher than its twin fort.
There are many cisterns of water within the fort. Water in a few of them is potable. There are numerous caves scattered near the base of the peak, and some of them are inhabitable. The winding path leading up to the fort is richly endowed with thick vegetation. There is a temple of Shiva at the peak, and a statue of the bull 'Nandi,' at the top of the citadel. Shiva was the patron deity of the fort, it seems to suggest.
