Sada Fort
Fascinating Spots :

      Sada village is the base village of the fort. in this village there is a beautiful staired well near the house of Desai family. This well is known as Hadpi’s well. This well is in the shape of a Key and is built in 2 parts. By climbing 18 stairs we come to the first stage of the well. In the wall of the well over here we can see an arch which in the corner and its height is about 3 feet. The whole well can be circumnavigated from here.

The stairs further descend to an arched door which further leads to the water. After visiting this well proceed to the Vitthal temple in the village. This temple can be used for an overnight stay. The stairs which pass besides the temple take us to the mansion. There is a ruined mansion over here and Goddess Pavnai inside. Other ruins can also be seen near this mansion. After visiting this mansion we come to the flat open ground where the local villagers celebrate the festival of Holi. Moving ahead we come across the first fortified wall of the fort. Once we enter this premise proceed to the right. To the upper right side there are internal fortified wall and bastions.

As we move ahead we come across a built in path which takes us to the well outside the fortified wall. This path goes to the fort from within the inside part of the fortified wall but the path is currently is in ruins. Head back and start ascending the fort. On this route we can see the stones of the fort entrance lying across. The entrance door of this fort is built in Gomukhi architectural style. There are porches built for gatekeepers on both sides of the doorway and further there is an arched window on the right side of the fortified wall. From this window one can see Malgoli village, Tilari dam and nearby region. This window was used as a watch tower. There is a door opposite to the window which takes us on the fort top. A path to the left from here takes us to another bastion where a canon is kept. As the fort is small the entire fort can be covered in 30 minutes.
