The region of Gorakhgad and Machchindra gad has a dense forest cover. Fort Gorakhgad is quite small in size. It was had strategic importance during the Shree Shahaji Raje period. However, no major battle is recorded to have taken place here. It was used in Shivaji's era to patrol the nearby region and was used as a stopover station during the journey to Junnar via Naneghat. Though small in size, there is enough availability water and a lot of space for accommodation. The fort gets its name from Saint Gorakhnath, who performed his "Sadhana" in this place.
