Devgad Overview

Devgad, also known as Devgarh or Deogarh, is a coastal city located in Sindhudurg District of Maharashtra. The city is situated near the Arabian Sea in the Konkan coast region, south of Mumbai. The place is popular for its harbour, beach and lighthouse, which was built in 1915 at the fort of Devgad.

Kanoji Angre, the chief of the Maratha navy, established the Devgad Fort in 1705. This fort was named so as it stood at the confluence of the Arabian Sea and Devgad Creek. The town was ruled by King Ramdev Yadav for a long time.

The Vijaydurga Fort, also known as Gheria, is a historic fort that was constructed by Shilaharaj king, Raja Bhoj and was ruled by him for some time. Later the fort was ruled by Adilshah, then by Shivaji and finally, it came under Kanoji Angre’s reign. The fort was also occupied by the British, Dutch and Portuguese armies for 400 years. The place is also famous for a wall, which was built under the sea, near the shores, in order to break the ships of enemies.
