Legend has it that under the leadership of a certain Chimaji Rao Appa, the Maratha had captured the fort in the month of January in 1739 AD. In around 1817 AD, the British usurped the Dahanu Fort under the ‘Treaty of Bassein’. It was later converted to a prison.
The fort still is in amazing condition and awes all kinds of architecture and historic enthusiasts even today. The terrace of the fort, however, got destroyed in 1818.
The Dahanu Fort serves as a major attraction for tourists visiting Bordi.
