Sarasgad Fort is the twin of [[Sudhagad Fort]].<ref>{{cite book|last=Gunaji|first=Milind|title=Offbeat Tracks in Maharashtra|publisher=Popular Prakashan|date=2005|page=103|isbn=978-81-7154-669-5}}</ref> It can be identified by its four pinnacles and thus was mainly used as a watch place to check the surrounding region. The construction of the fort is now not in a good condition but the huge rock steps are something to be seen. There are two routes which lead to the top of this fort from Pali. On the top is the [[Shiva]] temple providing an excellent panoramic view of all the mountain ranges surrounding this area. [[Sudhagad]], [[Sankshi fort]], [[Sagargad]] and [[TailBaila]] can be easily viewed from the top of Sarasgad.

This fort height from sea level is 490 meters. There are many caves which were used for soldiers and other purposes because the fort has very little area available on its top. There are around ten tanks carved in rocks. 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 repairing the fortifications of this fort.<ref>http://trekshitiz.com/trekshitiz/Ei/Sarasgad-Trek-Medium-Grade.html</ref> Till independence this fort was in [[Bhor]] princely state. On the way from the south there are 111 steps carved in stone. The door from this side is known as 'Dindi darvaja'.
