Bhavangad

Bhavangad is based on a small hill. The fort was constructed amid the season of Vasai battle, right amidst the monsoons. Since the fort was to be worked in less time, the dividers were worked by simply setting the stones and no cementing material was utilized.

The western passage of fort is of Gomukhi style. The curve of this passage is broken, however, the bastion and the dividers are in place. Limestone was utilized as a part of the development of this passage. Close to entrance, there are vestibules for watches. Inside there is a square water tank, around which local people have fabricated a defensive divider. It is brimming with water. Fort zone is loaded with trees. Begin from the stronghold on the privilege of the tank. A little way goes down from North-East of a fort. On the left of the way, there are 2 hollows. They were most likely used to store grains. This way goes to Dandapada town. Simply come back from caverns, and finish the post-visit.

  • A crucial fort at its time now stands in a dilapidated state like several other forts in Maharashtra. A few bastions and walls still stand tall. One gets a great view of the surrounding areas from the fort.
