  • Maharashtra has got many forts and this is one of it. This Ford is located in sea. You have to go at fort by Ferrey . This is Good place to go during summer or winter season. Weekend you will get crowd and can expect jam in late,.... Best place to visit in short time or weekend . ... Thank You...
  • A must visit from Ganapati pule.. this fort has a great history behind it.. "Vijaydurg" fort, since it's never been captured, you must take a guide to know this history behind this fort.. the place is not maintained well.. our government should put efforts in maintaining out historic places.
  • Fort is awesome. Take around 2 hrs with guide. 1 hr without guide. Surrounded area is not so clean.
  • Oldest fort in Maharashtra, built during Raja Bhoja times. Near the Sindhudurg fort. Awesome scenic beauty absolutely eye catching. Again near the sea shore. Walls of fort held strongly, big fort with huge storage and other aminities inside. The descendents of the warriors live here and narrate interesting stories of that period. Overall a very nice experience.
  • Main Vijaydurg fort was built by Raja bhoj around 12th century in 5 Acre landscape, but the great Shivaji Maharaj rebuilt the same fort in 130acre in 16th century. Reconstruction work started on Vijayadashmi(dasara) hence fort now known as VijayDurg. I will always recommend to take the help of guide when you are visiting such historical places. Fort is well maintained and clean
