The fortification walls were not very tall and were made of compressed soil and bricks. The entrance was also not strong enough to defend an onslaught. Overall, it was just a small outpost on the Pune-Kolhapur road. From Shirwal bus stand, the main road going towards the village takes us directly to the site of this fortress. The remains of this fortress are shocking - a solitary bastion can be seen in a dilapidated condition. A small Durgadevi temple near it is probably the only other structure to have lived through the centuries of utter neglect.
