Velas Beach :  Velas is the birth place of Nana Phadnis, one of the great prominent personalities in Maratha history. Due to the sea-shore Velas is an existing place and it is situated near Bankot Bay. There is an old temple of Shri Bhairi- Rameshwar and in this temple all twelve months water is made available taking the benefit of favorable geographical conditions. A statue of Nana Phadnis is present outside his house. In Velas Mahalakshmi temple and Nana Phadnis house are the places to visit. Velas is also one of the popular breeding sites of Olive Ridley, which is an endangered species of turtle.  

 

Bankot Fort:

 

Region: Mandangad

District: Ratnagiri

Height: Sea fort (Slightly above sea level)

Difficulty: Simple

 

Bankot is a square shaped fort. On the sides of Bankot fort, there is a dry moat (Revni) dug out in the Jambhya stone. Jambhya stone is peculiar type of stone adorning a purple shade and peculiarly it is incapable of storing water as the water invariable percolates through it owing to its much porous nature. The main entrance (Mahadarwaja) of the fort is north-facing with a well sculpted arch and carvings. Watch guards dug out (Devdya) align on both sides of the Mahadarwaja with some pits being dug out in the right Devdi. On the left, there are steps leading towards Nagarkhana while there is an underground storey and a tunnel on the right. A Maruti idol in the centre stands deserted now. On the west, there is a small entrance (Darwaja) leading to a Bastion on the exterior of the fortifications. A deep well (now dry and filled) occupied the centre of this bastion earlier and the adjacent water tanks too are dry and obsolete now. One can leave the Buruj via a small exit that leads to the surrounding moat and a beautiful “Revni” lying nearby.

Dear All

We @ शिखर वेध has arranged a  Night Trek to Kankeshwar and fun time @ Mandva beach near Alibaug 

.

Kanakeshwar is a nice place and famous for cool climate & especially bcoz of the old temple of Lord Shiva. The temple is situated on a small hill @ village Mapgaon abt 12 km frm Alibaug. The hill is almost 1200 feet high and one has to climb 700 – 750 steps to reach on top

.

In the mid of the hill one can see Nagobacha Tappa (a Place of Snakes) and the famous step Devachi Payari. There is popular story abt this step that it was named bcoz it is said that God itself stepped here after the construction of the temple and the steps. The temple of Kanakeshwar is very beautiful; it is a Hoysal style structure built in 1764. A water tank, popularly known as Pushkarni, has water almost throughout the year

.

The hill and the surroundings are pretty good to visit. One can see the hilly region & forest on the hill. The places to see near Kanakeshwar are Maruti Temple, Gaymandi (Sculpture of Cow), Temple of Devi Putrabai, Gaymukh and the plateau of Vyaghreshwar (a small temple of Lord Shiva), etc

Dear All,

Brief Introduction about Korlai: –
Grade:  Simple
Location: Alibag region

.
Fort Korlai – which is quite beautiful. It is surrounded by sea on three sides. It is not a tall fort. The total height is about 275 m. The most fascinating one is the beach here. The blue ocean on one side and the creek named “Kundalika” on the eastern end create scenery. The fort is situated at the mouth of the creek.
The fort is an Old Portuguese outpost guarding the entrance to the river. A small road leads up to the top of the fort. There is a Lighthouse on the fort and a small climb from behind the lighthouse will take you to the fort. The fort is in ruins, but the view from the lighthouse is beautiful and the rocky beach at Korlai is also good.
