Kulaba Fort

Kulaba Fort, near Alibag, was built by Shivaji Maharaj in 1680. The fort is off the main seashore and is better accessed during low tide.

The fort, also called Alibag Fort, has walls made of stone blocks placed on each other without any binding material. There are 17 towers and the main entrance doorway is located on the eastern side and faces northeast. The stone walls are carved with peacocks, elephants, tiger, deer and crocodile. Inside the fort are the temples of 'Gaddevta', with an idol of Mahishasura. There is a well next to these temples and a water tank. You can also find the temple of Siddhivinayak, remains of a wada and memorial of commander Kanhoji Angre.
