      A chain of Padmagad, Rajkot, Sarjekot forts were built by Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj to protect Sindhudurg fort. Padmagad fort is located between Sindhudurg fort and the coast of Malvan. Before the Tsunami of 2006, the fort was accessible on foot from Moryacha Dhonda. Fore sighting the potential threat of attack from this route, Shivaji Maharaj built Padmadurg on the rock which was between Sindhudurg and Malvan coast.

The rocks adjoining the fort have been cut in a specific manner to dock ships and it can viewed from the fortified wall.
