Padmadurg

Padmadurg is a fort in Maharashtra, India.The fort was built by Shivaji Maharaj to the northwest of Janjira. This Fort  is also called as 'Kasa' . The main idea behind building this fort was to protect the Sindhudurga fort from the landward side.
The sea fort of Padmadurg is not as big as Janjira but still the fort can be visited and enjoyed. Visiting the fort requires taking permission from Custom\Navy. The fort was not only a part of Sindhudurg's defenses but  was also Shivaji Maharaj's main ship construction yard. The fort looks great from Janjira. There was a belt of land from Dandi seashore to Padmadurga but it got blown away under the water in 2004.

The fort of Padmadurg is now almost disappeared into the sea because of the effect of Tsunami in Indonesia. The fort lay between the Sindhudurga and the coast, and featured a dry dock - a narrow tongue of water between two rock walls. It is said that there was an underground way to sindhudurga fort.There are no direct boat fares to the fort as a result of which the visitors have to hire a personal boat. The walls of the fort are unable to stop the sea water some portion of fort is taken by sea water sometimes.

Location

The Padmadurg fort is half a km away from Malvan jetty by sea way. It is situated in east-north direction of Sindhudurga fort.
