Harishchandragad was captured by the Marathas in 1747 from the Moguls.   Konkan Kada: The most interesting point on this fort is this cliff, which has always fascinated many people from many years. The cliff faces west and looks down upon the Konkan with a breathtaking view of the surrounding region and sunset. This cliff is not just vertical; it is an overhang, almost like a cobra’s hood.   Kedareshwar: The cave of Kedareshwar has a big Shivlinga, which is totally surrounded by water.
