Thal, Maharashtra 402208, India
Old Portuguese forts surrounded by a shrubby terrain, Khanderi in Thal, seven kilometres from the Alibaug district of Maharashtra, and Underi near the mouth of Mumbai’s harbour, near Prong’s Lighthouse, are two fort islands whose histories date back to the 1600s. These forts have seen the Maratha and the British rule as well, and but they aren’t very talked about. Although, history buffs often find themselves walking around the walls of these forts.WHAT TO DO:Trekking the fort islands is taking that Alibaug weekend drive a bit further. Explore the drawings on the cave walls in Underi, visit the temple of Vetal, the tomb of Daud Pir, and the British-made lighthouse. The island is also accessible by a ferry.This article was first published in Travel and Leisure India South Asia. To read more stories like this one click here.
