Sarasgad fort & it's twin Sudhagad fort can be identified by the four pinnacles and thus were mainly used as a watch place to check the surrounding region. The construction of the fort is not in good condition and the huge rock steps are something to watch for. There are two routes which lead you to the top of this fort from Pali. On the top there is a Shiva temple & also the overall panoramic view of the surrounding mountain range is excellent. Sudhagad and TailBaila can be easily viewed from the top of Sarasgad.

The height of the fort from sea level is approx 490 meters / 1670 feet. There are many caves which were used by the soldiers for various purposes because the fort has very little area available on it's top. There are around ten tanks carved in rock. They provide cool water supply throughout the year, which is very important for any fort. Shivaji Maharaj gave 2000 hones (golden coin used as currency during Shivaji Maharaj's time) for restoration and fortification of this fort. From the south side there are 111 steps carved in stone. The door from this side is known as 'Dindi darvaja'.
