  • Description:
  • Kelve beach in western suburbs is famous. The Kelve fort stands northwards of this beach in the forest. The fort is star shaped with triangular bastions. There is another fort on a small island at some distance from the beach, called Kelve Pankot (sea fort).
    The fort walls and entrances were buried under sand, until in 2008-09, a group of people under the group “Kille Vasai Mohim” cleaned up the sand and the entrances. Today, we have to enter crawling through the partially blocked entrance to the first level. Entering the second door we reach the backside of the fort. There are 4 amazing bastions on 4 sides, shaped triangular. These have windows and holes for guns. It takes less than an hour to see the fort.
