Gopalgad Hill Overview

Ranked 4 of 7 sightseeing in Guhagar

Gopalgad Hill, located in the Anjanvel village of Guhagar, is known for its beautiful surroundings. The hill has a beautiful fort that is popular as the Gopalgad Fort, also known as the Anjanwale Fort. This fort is believed to have been constructed by the Bijapur Rulers in the 16th century. The fort was captured by Shivaji Maharaj in 1660.

After the demise of Shivaji Maharaj in 1680, the fort was captured by Siddi Khairat Khan. Tuloji Angre in 1744 captured the fort and brought it back under the control of the Maratha Kingdom. With the fall of the Maratha Empire in 1818, the fort came under the control of the British until India got its independence in 1947.

It spreads over an area of around 7 acres and the entire premises of the fort are segmented into two units. The lower part of the fort walls is called Padkot while the upper walls are referred to as Balekot. Strong fort walls comprising 12 burujs have been constructed to protect the fort against attacks. It has two main entrance gates, situated on the eastern and western sides.

Hidden Fort on the Gopalgad Hill

Many of who have visited this place must have told you that this place is more under the control of the Govt. This property has been owned by some private franchise who has planted Mangoes in it. Having said that the place is free to be explored, guessing what if the Mangoes ripe and the owner decides to shut down the gates. Good place to visit but along with this you should visit the Light Tower nearby. Remember the Tour closes by 5 so you should be there before that.

Be cautious as some parts are tricky

The views from the fort are terrific. The fort is in ruins and most part is a mango orchard and is a private property. However a board at the entrance says in marathi that tourists are welcome to explore the place. The caretaker joined us for a while and shared his stories on mango farming. Overall it was a nice short visit to the fort. A word of caution which I am repeating from an earlier review- Solitary travellers and lone couples should exercise caution as the fort is not a much frequented destination by tourists. Families with small kids(< 5 years) need to be careful as some parts are tricky and there is also a deep well without a boundary wall.
