Vijaydurg & Sindhudurg Fort

Vijaydurg & Sindhudurg Fort

Vijaydurg & Sindhudurg Fort, Vijaydurg & Sindhudurg Fort travel, Vijaydurg & Sindhudurg Fort tourismOnce naval bases, Vijaydurg and Sindhudurg bear testimony to Maharashtra's martial supremacy during Shivaji's reign. Vijaydurg or Victory Fort was strengthened around the seventeenth century by Shivaji, to whom it owes its finest features -- the triple line of walls, the numerous towers and the massive interior buildings.

Once seized by the British and renamed Fort Augustus, Sindhudurg or the Ocean Fort at Malvan port has history etched all over. Constructed by Shivaji in 1664, at a site personally selected by him. The construction of a sea fort is a stupendous task, and at Sindhudurg no efforts were spared. Over 2000 khandis (4000 mounds) of iron were used for casting and the foundation stones were laid down firmly in lead.

Tourism of Central India can also customize your tour to the Forts in Maharashtra, to include other stunning forts in Maharashtra namely Daulatabad, Gavilgad, Ghodbunder, Murud-Harnai and Sinhagad. We can also club your tour with beaches in Maharashtra tours so that you can have an enriching and entertaining vacation in Maharashtra.

Even today, as one approaches the fort past a rocky reef, navigable through a narrow channel, one marvels at the transportation of such heavy material through such choppy waters. Within its precincts are temples holding the shrines of Maruti, Bhavani, Mahadeo, Jarimai, Mahapurush and also of Shivaji -- the only such shrine in the country. As for Vijaydurg and Sindhudurg beaches, they offer the visitor one of the most serene and beautiful coastal views in India.
