What to see:

While climbing the stone steps of the fort, we can see moat on both sides of the steps, around 20 x 10 feet deep. It’s covered by trees now. The entrance is almost destroyed, with a big bastion and ramparts remaining. If we go to the top from the path to the right of the fort, we can see the ramparts and the moat. From the western point, we can see the wonderful orange coloured rocks on the beach. To the right side is the beautiful Bhogve beach. We can also see the light house of Vengurla, situated on “Burnt Rocks”. The citadel is strengthened by moats. The walls are still there, and plinths of some mansions can be seen. In front of the sea facing side of the fort, we can see a rock almost 20 feet towards the sea, called as “Junagad”. One can climb over the same. In the village, we can see water tanks called “Shivaji’s Pond”. Also, the Vetoba temple in Parule village and the carvings seen around are not to be missed.
