Suvarnadurg Fort :

Suvarnadurga fort was built by Adilshah, Sultan of Bijapur and subsequently taken by Shivaji Maharaj in 1660 for the Maratha navy's shipbuilding facility. The fort was severally damaged in the attack by William James in 1755. The solid rock walls of the fort are specimen of the strong fortification of that time. The main gate is apparently hidden and has rock cut figres of tortoise and Lord Hanuman. The unique feature of the place is that the sweet water is available in spite it is surrounded by sea. The sea fort can be accessible only through boat which is not easily available and need to be checked with local fishermen.
