MANIKGAD FORT History

Manikgad Fort (T. Panvel; 18° 45′ N, 73° 10′ E), in Manikgad village, on the hill of the same name about fifteen miles southeast of Panvel and about 1,878 feet high, is impregnable from three sides, and the upper part can be reached only from the south. The fortifications on the top, which are of extremely rough workmanship, were probably raised by Angre, to whom it was ceded in 1718 by the Pesva [Mr. Cumine’s MS; Grant Duff’s Marathas, Vol. I, 328.]. The fort is now ruinous and the village has been deserted.
