Padmadurg, India. This isolated ocean fortress was built long ago by the Maratha Empire and was later occupied by the Siddis and the British. Abandoned and largely ruined, it is inaccessible to the public (unless one has a private boat). I'll post more in the comments.

  • Would be cool to own it. I am making it my life's goal for the week.
  • You plan to buy it this week?
  • that's the plan. for this week at least. may plan on something bigger next week! ed: my thoughts right now
  • When you look at the satellite view, there is another island castlle a bit south. Got any info about this one ?
  • Yes, that is a much bigger and more famous castle. I made a single picture post about it a while ago. I'll probably make a new in-depth post about it sometime in the future. The fortress you speak of is known as Murud-Janjira . It was controlled by the Siddis (an ethnic group in India descended from black African immigrants/slaves/sailors) and was completely impregnable. The Dutch, Marathas, English, and Portuguese all tried and all failed to conquer this sanctuary of the Siddi people. In fact, padmadurg was built to be a base from which to attack the Siddis on Murud-Janjira.
  • Thanks for the interesting infos.
  • Hill, this one is sick! I would pay at least $1,000 to buy this. I mean, my bank account isn't that of a king or anything...
  • Pirate Fortress.

  • Here is a better shot showing the beach http://www.shivchhatrapati.com/gallery_det.php?id=177 And another http://www.shivchhatrapati.com/gallery_det.php?id=320
  • So, if you had a boat or chartered one, it would be allowable to explore? That would be awesome to check out.
  • Based on what I can tell, people can and do occasionally visit this abandoned fortress. However, it might require more effort than just acquiring a boat. Apparently, padmadurg is under "a seal by the Indian Government", as there are rumours that the fortress site has been used for the smuggling of drugs into India. It can still be visited, but special permissions are required to be obtained from either Customs or the Navy to enter into the fort...
  • I don't understand. It's inaccessible to the public, unless one has a private boat? Lots of people have boats. I have a boat. Can I go onto the island or no?
  • As far as I can tell from a quick internet search, you can go and visit it with one caveat: Apparently, padmadurg is under "a seal by the Indian Government", as there are rumours that the fortress site has been used for the smuggling of drugs into India. It can still be visited, but special permissions are required to be obtained from either Customs or the Navy to enter into the fort...
  • Called my dad about it. He said heroine traffic comes through this fort. Pirates and gun runners use it as a port of call on occasion. The Indian navy and coast guard keep watch on it. But apparently if you know the right people, you can get the permit. He said it easier to just hand the coast guard captain a bribe, and go exploring.
  • Reminds me of Pangu Island from Archer... with the pirates and lacrosse hahah
