Konkan isn’t just about beaches. It is also about getting to know the legacy that our ancestors have left behind. You’ll find Suvarnadurg fort in Harnai, Dapoli. Shivaji Maharaj (The father of Indian Navy) built this fort. The three other forts surrounding it are Kanakdurg Fort, Goa Fort, and Fattegad Fort. They were created to safeguard Suvarnadurg. Out of the three, Kanakdurg fort is nearest to the Harnai port with a surface area of 0.25 hectares. The huge sea surrounds all three sides of the fort. You can enter the fort using stairs. As you reach the end, you’ll find a water tank on your right. You’ll see an incredible lighthouse on the southern side. It is now a weather department office. Nine water tanks are aligned one after another inside the fort.
Kanakdurg attracts a lot of tourists as the sunset here looks fascinating. Also, Harnai Port has a fish market and it can be seen from the fortress itself! Kanakdurg Fort is a must-see place when in Dapoli.
