Dear All,

We @ शिखर वेध has arranged a one day trip to Padamdurg (KASA FORT) on Sunday 6 April 2014

Padmadurg, also known as Kasa fort, is a fort in Maharashtra, India. It was built by the great Maratha ruler King Shivaji to the northwest of the fort Janjira. It was built mainly to conquer the fort Janjira, although it is not as big as Janjira. Due to incomplete construction, and bombardment from Janjira during its construction, only ruins of the Padmadurg fort remain.

It looks great from Janjira. When Shivaji the Great decided o take on the Siddis of Janjira, his admiral, Daulat Khan, built this fort on an island next to Janjira. The rock, on which the fort was built, was called Kasa and the fort was named Padmadurg. The fort has six bastions, some of them devastated by gun attack from the famous ‘kalal bangdi’ gun in Janjira. Kasa was soon overpowered by Siddis and used as a Jail.
