Narayangad(Amboli) FortHeight : 1520
Type : Hill forts Fort Range : Amboli - Sindhudurga
District : Sindhudurg Grade : Medium
      This fort stands across the valley opposite to the “Kaavlesaad” point in the famous hill station of Amboli. Narayangad was built to keep a watch on the trade route of Paarpoli ghat which was used to transport goods from the sea ports to across the ghats. It was also used as an Octroi collection center.

Only a few old people from the base village of Gele know about this fort. The younger generation is entirely clueless about any such fort existing in the area.

The route from the base village is not difficult and is straight with some slopes. The route passes through a dense forest where not many people pass through. There is a possibility of wild animals being spotted here. This place in Amboli provides an off-beat destination for the ones seeking something different in a hill station.

Narayangad(Amboli)
History :
      This fort was built by Anasaheb Fond Sawant of Sawantwadi.
Fascinating Spots :

      There are hardly any remnants on the fort. There is a temple of Goddess Sateri Devi and some sculpted stones under a tree. Some remains of houses can also be seen. From the fort one can see Manohar-Mansantoshgad to the West and Kalesaad point to the East. To the North there are three pinnacles visible on a mountain which is known as Gangotri Laginvaada. The highest pinnacle which is a bit round in shape is called as Mhataricha gunda and the other two are Navara and Navari.

This fort stands separated from the main mountain range due to a valley. Instead of going back one can climb the mountain opposite to the fort which has two places of worship in a dense forest. One is called Lingi which has a Shiv linga and a Nadndi while the other is called Mhartaal where there are idols in the open. As the area lies under dense forest cover it is strongly advised to take a route guide along.
Ways To Reach :
      Hill station Amboli is 32 kms from Sawantwadi. Regular buses ply from Sawantwadi to Amboli. The base village of the fort is Gele which is 7 kms from Amboli. Take the Amboli-Belgaum highway and 5.5 kms from Amboli take the diversion towards Kaavlesaad point and Gele village (1 km before Aajra junction). After reaching this junction, proceed taking the left turn which leads to 2 roads of which the one to the right leads to Kaavlesaad point and the one to the left takes us to Gele village.
