Jaigad Fort

Location: 

The 17th century Jaigad Fort, 35 km from Ganapatipule is located at the mouth of the Sangameshwar River. The fort gives great views of the sea.

The Jaigad Fort is a sea fort which is located at the tip of a peninsula in the district of Ratnagiri. The Fort is cuddled on a cliff which overlooks a bay. The bay is formed where the Shastri river enters the Arabian Sea. The Fort is 35 km from Ganapatipule.

A lighthouse and a jetty port is situated near the fort. Even though the fort is in ruins, the exterior wall and the bulwarks can still be seen. A deep fosse fences the fort side which is not facing the cliff edge. But no fortification on the east side is visible.
