Sindhudurg (Marathi: सिंधुदुर्ग जिल्हा) is an administrative district in the state of Maharashtra in India, which was carved out of the erstwhile Ratnagiri District. The district headquarters are located at Oros (ओरस).
The district is named after the fort of Sindhudurg (which means "fort in the sea"), which lies on a rocky island just off the coast of Malvan (मालवण). Sindhudrg fort built in 16th Century by Raja Shivaji is the only fort which has shivaji temple inside the fort and palm mark of King Shivaji. Sindhudurg is the only district in Maharashtra having highest number of forts (37 Nos.) as well as all types of forts (Jaldurg - Sea), (Bhuikot - fort on land) and (Giri- fort on hilltop).
The 8 talukas of this district are Devgad, Kankavli, Malvan, Kudal, Savantwadi, Vengurla, Dodamarg and Vaibhavwadi. There are 3 Vidhan Sabha constituencies in this district. These are Kankavli, Sawantwadi and Kudal. All of these are part of the Ratnagiri-Sindhudurg Lok Sabha constituency.
Mango is a major factor to the life of Sindhudurg. Varieties of Alphonso Mango (हापुस आंबा) from Devgad are particularly popular. Other varieties of mango: Mankur (मानकुर), Payari (पायरी) and Karel (करेल - used for preparing Mango Pickle) are also popular for their distinct taste.
