At a distance of 25 kms from Mahabaleshwar stands the majestic Pratapgadh housing the tomb of Afzalkhan at the toe of the fort. This fort is famous for the encounter between Shivaji and Afzalkhan, the ruler of Ahmednagar.

In spite of being attacked by tiger claws, Shivaji killed Afzalkhan.  There is a temple of Bhavani Mata, the idol of worship of King Shivajiraje Bhosle. There is a statue of Shivaji Maharaj inside the fort called Bale Killa.

Currently accesible by a motorable road to the top, all the amenities of a hill-station are available at MTDC's resort a few kms. away at Mahabaleshwar
