Tandulwadi is a hilltop fort which offers a great view of the confluence of rivers Vaitarna and Surya. Tandulwadi fort is situated about 5 km from Saphale Railway Station. This fort is one of the most beautiful spot for mumbaikars to visit in one day. In thirteenth century, King Bhimdevs kingdom comprised the cities of Shurparak (Nalasopara) and Mahikawati (Mahim). In 1454, Sultan of Ahmedabad captured Mahikawati. One Bhadurshah conferred the responsibility of Tandulwadi to a Mallik Allauddin. Later the fort was in the hands of Portuguese and then the Peshwas. There are remains of the fortification as we reach to the top. There is a square shaped water pond on the top of the fort. There is no water in any of these cisterns after monsoon.
