The Sindhudurg fort is built to safeguard the dynasty run by the King Shivaji. With its massive walls measuring 12 feet thick and 29 feet high, it served as an ideal obstruction to retain the enemies at bay, extending for a stretch of two miles. The entrance of the fort is built in such a way that no enemies could find out their way into the fort easily. The Sindhudurg fort is the tactile sample of the ingenious and forethought qualities of the substantial leader. It forms not only an interesting historical attraction but also makes the district significant with its natural landscape serving many spectators to visit. To experience the charming and enchanting sight of this massive fort, one should certainly drop round to see this once.
This place is the proud bearer of footprints of the remarkable fighter Chhatrapati Shivaji. The fort also has few queer qualities like an underwater passage extending about 3 km and 12 km beneath the sea, three wells that do not parch any time and a peculiar branched coconut tree.
