Padmagad (Malvan)

Type: Coastal fort

Height (Approx in ft.): 0

Grade: Easy

Base Village: Malvan

District: Sindhudurg

Nearest Railway Station: Kudal

How to reach:

We have to convince the boatmen near Dandgeshwar temple in Malvan to reach the fort. Else we just get a glance of the fort while going to Sindhudurga or from a bastion on Sindhudurga where hand and foot prints of Shivaji Maharaj are kept.

Time to reach from base village: 10 mins

What to see:

The main entrance of the fort is intact and faces Sindhudurga. The ramparts and bastions are destroyed. There is a dry well in and a temple of “Vetal” in the fort. The local people have hoisted flags on the bastion in front of the temple. The surrounding rock was smartly modified by Maratha architects to build a dock here.
