  • It's a very small fortress jutting out of the Kelva creek. It is located at a good vantage point giving view navigation routes. The entry into this fortress is possible only at hight tide using a boat. At low tide one can easily walk from shore to the foot of the fortress. Overgrown trees and thicket of bushes will greet you inside

  • It is a unique structure & a must visit spot for history explorers. Due to its unique shape the fort has became a point of curiousity.
    To get here the first thing to note is the timings of low tides. The fort can only be accessed in low tides.
    It's a mini adventure trail where you walk a km or two from kelve beach & will sometimes have to walk from a knee level water streams to get here. The chilled water streams coming from danda creek may look dangerous to cross but it's not deep. The sand level is not that leveled so do hold each other's hand while crossing water streams.
    If you plan to climb & get inside then the big entrance from the danda creek side is the way to climb up. Climbing up is simple but coming down is difficult especially if you have hieght phobia as while coming down you may not see the places to put your foot.

  • This is historical place of palghar district. It was build in 16th century. it basically used to keep watch on boats that visit kelva port. Now we can go on this fort only when it's low tide, or by boat. but there is no spacial boat service available. we have to use local fisherman's boat and it's very hard to negotiate with them about money to hire boat. We have spend one night here and it was beautiful night.
