This fort was built by King Bhoj in 1200 A.D. and was known as “Gheria”. Later Shivaji Maharaj took
over this fort and named it “Vijaydurga”. This fort is also known as Jibralter of east. Sprawling over an area
of 48 acres, Vijaydurg, fort of victory, was once seized by the British following a bloody battle. They renamed
it Fort Augustus. A dilapidated board at the entrance of the fort relates its history. One of the best views of
the fort is from the jetty. The fort stretches out into the sea and a walk inside its precincts is worthwhile.
Shivaji added triple rows of huge walls, umpteen towers and spacious inner buildings to it and strengthened
it in the 17th century. Vijaydurg’s beach is a stretch of about a kilometer with good views of the fort at the
right and a small plateau with a hut to the left. Once naval bases, Vijaydurg and Sindhudurg bear testimony
to Maharashtra’s martial supremacy during Shivaji’s reign.

the world visit through out the year to see this Maratha glory. Maratha King Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj built
this fort on is land of ‘Kurte’ which amazes people & one appreciates imaginative power of Shivaji. In 1664
Shivaji erected this fort on 44 acers of land. It took 500 stone splitters & stone breakers, 200 blacksmiths ,
3000 labourers & hundreds of skilled artists who toiled very hard to complete this fort in three years. This is
evident from stone inscriptions. Initially 3 K.M. long outer wall (Tat) was built. Average height of wall 10
meter and 2 to 4 meter broad in which liquid lead was used in the foundation. This wall today also stands
11

impenetrable . The trick used in the construction of entrance door seems to be mastermind work. The
technique was so deceptive for the enemy that they could not even realize from where the entrance door
begins. Outer zigzag wall also built in such a way that if the enemy would come to attack it would be visible
from any side so that troops inside the fort could fire their guns and cannons effectively and humble the
enemy . Crores of Hones (Goldcoins) were then spent to build this wonderful fort. In Sindhudurg Fort there
is ‘Shri Shivarajeshwar temple the only temple of King Shivaji. Also there are temple of Hanuman & Jarimari
mandir and Goddess ‘Bhavani Temple’. Impressions of Shivaji’s fingers prints found to be preserved here on
one of the wall . Also lies, inside the fort worth seeing temples of Bhavanimata, Shambhu Mahadev, Jirimiri
& Mahapurush. All are in good conditions. There is one rare coconut tree inside the fort which has two
branches.
