History :
      Manikdurga was a part of Vijaynagar Empire. Later Adilshah captured these forts and destroyed them completely, due to which the fort also faded from the memory of the people.
Fascinating Spots :

      On the top we find the temple of Sukai Devi. The remnants are scattered everywhere in the forests. On the water tank we find stone carvings of Yakshas. Due to dense tree cover, we can see birds and butterflies here.
Ways To Reach :
      Chiplun – Savarde – Mandki distance is at 27 km. The road to Mandki village goes from Savarde village on Mumbai – Goa highway. Savarde – Mandki distance is 7 km and Savarde station – Mandki distance is 2 km. From the Amba stop in Mandki, the road to the left takes us to the fort base.

The path to the fort goes through dense tree cover. It takes one hour to reach the top.
