Tandulwadi Fort is located near Saphale, 104 km north of Mumbai. Tandulwadi is not a fully built up fort but has a series of structures spread over the top of the mountain. The fort dates back 800 years and was primarily used as a watch tower to keep watch on neighbouring forts and Arabian sea. In 1509, the Portuguese took the fort from the Sultan of Ahmedabad and in 1737 lost control of the area to the Marathas in the battle of Bassein.
