    Another important fort in Pune is Visapur Fort. Though the fort is built much later to Lohagad, the history of the two forts is closely connected. In 1818, the fort was attacked and occupied by the British. The higher elevation and close proximity to Lohagad helped the British so much to continue the attack against the Marathas. The British set up their cannons and bombarded Lohagad. And thus, Lohagad was also taken over by the British troops.

    Visapur Fort is measured to be bigger and higher than Lohagad and houses different caves, cisterns of water, an arch fully decorated and old houses. 
    There are the ruins of a large stone built house known to Peshwa’s palace. One can see the huge carving of Hanuman and multiple temples dedicated to him all over the place. Hanuman was the patron deity of Visapur Fort. The mythologies say the fort was built by the Pandavas.
