The fort is beautifully nestled between the mountains in the east and the sea to the west.

The col of this fort is about 1.5 hours walk from the base village of Khodkona and it takes about another 30 minutes to reach the top from the col. There are many things to see at the top, including the remains of various settlements, fortification symbols, Portuguese shield, two lakes, caves etc. The fort was built by Raja Bhoj about 800 years ago and the fort has stood witness to various wars and struggles of capture ever since.

Later in 1737, it was taken over by Chimaji Appa before being handed over to the Britishers in 1818. It is a great place to visit.for history buffs.
