Manikgad is a mountain fortress and temple in Gherakilla Manikgad, India.
Located among rolling hills, the temple is a popular hiking spot.
Manikgad was built to oversee the trade route from Maval (Pune) to coastal ports. The fort is situated near Vashivali (Rasayani MIDC), which is 27 km from Panvel.

Only ruins of the fort remain. A big rock-cut cistern on the fort is called the “Darya take”. A small shiva linga and a few small rock-cut cisterns are present. The Ganesh gate is the only standing structure. A circular trench is cut in the rock for lime mixing.

Other nearby forts include Karnala, Prabalgad, Chanderi, Malang gad, Irshalgad, Sondai, Lohagad, Visapur, and Sankshi.
