The top of the fort is actually very small. There are remnants of old buildings. The bastion at the entrance is dilapidated. 5-6 cisterns can be seen to the left of the main gate, on the lower side of the cliff. There is a small cave to the right. At the top there is a Hanuman temple. An idol of Hanuman sits outside the temple.
History[edit | edit source]
King Bhoj of the Shilahar Dynasty built Vairatgad in the 11th century. During King Shivaji's reign the fort was used as a military station. King Shivaji conquered the Wai region and included Vairatgad and Pandavgad in his kingdom. The British captured it in 1818.
