Sarjekot Fort

Sarjekot is one amongst the chain of forts built by Shivaji in and around Malvan. Fort is situated on the mouth of Talashil Estuary which displays its splendor.

Sarjekot was constructed in 1668 at the mouth of Kalavali Creek. The creek was navigable inland for 11+ kilometers, and it runs in zig-zags, thus producing natural safe inland anchorages. Presumably many of Shivaji’s ships could shelter in the creek during storm season.

Sunset view from this fort fascinates visitors. Sarjekot is also a natural port.
