- Name of the Fort:
- Height of the Fort:
- 500 m
- How To Reach:
- To visit this fort you need to travel around 130 kms by the Mumbai - Ahmedabad national highway and reach Talasari. Further to it the village Kaalji is at a distance of 19 kms (from Mumbai it’s 149 kms). However, there is no signboard located on the roadside to locate this village. It can be recognized through a road on the left side of the highway which leads to a local village school. The hill opposite to this school has the way to reach Ballalgad fort.
- Ballalgad forts are situated in Talasari Taluka, Palghar district on the border of Gujarat and Maharashtra near the Mumbai - Ahmedabad national highway. This fort was built on a small hill near Kaalji village. Compared to the other forts stituated nearby, the climb to Ballalgad is easy. Anyone can reach on the top of the fort in due course of time, since the fort is too close to the village Kaalji and of mere height. The visitors can visit and explore both Segava and Ballalgad in a single day. One can see many huge trees called ‘GHORAKH CHINCHA’ (African Baobab) in this vicinity. It is believed that the Portuguese had brought these trees in India in the form of saplings and planted them all-around the area around the fort.
