Khanderi And Underi Fort, Kihim, Raigad

   To beat the British and Siddi, Shivaji Maharaj built the fort on Khanderi Island which is near to Thal. It is possible for Marathas to keep an eye on the movement of the British and Siddi's due to this fort. This Khanderi and Underi sea forts are located in Thal, about 7kms. from Alibaug district, that is 5kms. off to coast of Maharashtra and 20kms. to the south of Mumbai. Khanderi falls under the control of Shivaji Maharaj and the Underi Island used to come under the control of Siddis, who were the opponents of Shivaji Maharaj.
