Shirgaon Fort

Shirgaon Fort is roughly 13 km far from the Palghar Station. According to localities, this Shirgaon Fort was worked by the Portuguese and was later won by the Marathas in 1738 alongside the Dahanu Fort, Tarapur, Kelve and Asherigad Fort under the capable administration of Chimaji Appa. Nonetheless, in 1818, the Britisher captured this Fort.

This been a land fort henceforth no trekking is required, one can just stroll in from the street to achieve the passage of the fort. Standing in front of the fort you will see Minar or tower on the correct side and an entryway beside that. Exactly at the entrance on the right side are engravings dating the origin of this fort to 1714 A.D. The fort of Shirgaon is around 200 feet long and 150 feet wide. The bulwark of the post is 35 feet in tallness and 10 feet in width. There are four bastions at the four corners of the fort and one at the entrance. Over the entrance, there is a pleasantly manufactured pedestal which recalls us the memorial of great Shivaji Maharaj.

  • This is a costal of the fort in a better condition close to shirgaon beach. It is about 14 kms from palghar can be reached by public transport from palghar. There is a palm tree inside this fort that has multiple branches which is rarely observed. One can cover this fort along with the kelwa fort and beach in a day.
