History Of Nivati Fort

For the uninitiated, Nivati Fort in Sindhudurg was constructed during the rule of Maratha king Chhatrapati Shivaji. It was built to protect the sea route from the Karli creek, according to the website of the Maharashtra Tourism department.  The summit of the fort provides an elevated view of the sea; it also has a lighthouse nearby.  Another fort you must visit in Maharashtra is Harihar Fort in Nashik. Go on a 80 degree vertically inclined trek to the fort.
