What’s so great about this venue or activity? Is it unique to this city?
This fort is said to exist since the Satvahan dynasty. In the books it is mentioned in the Treaty of Purander (1655 AD) where Shivaji gave 33 forts to the Moghuls. It is also said that Sagargard Fort was later given to Angre, the naval chief of the Marathas in return for loyalty against Shahu Chhattrapati of Satara. In the mid-19th century the British took the fort and built retreat homes on it. Also located on this fort a Temple of Siddheshwar, a river flowing by, and most of all a cliff just behind the temple where the river becomes a waterfall; water cistrens(Pandavkund), Vanartok Pinnacle. This hill fort commands a steering view of the entire Alibaug region and is still not a seafort,
