Surgad or God's Fort in the north-east of the Roha taluka and eight miles east of Roha town consists of a long and exceedingly narrow spur running south from the range of hills which separates Roha from Alibag and Nagothana.

In February 1818 Surgad was taken, along with Avacitgad by Colonel Prother's force [Nairne's Konkan, 114; Pendhari and Maratha Wars, 208.]. Besides the building described above, there are several other small ruined houses. Local tradition ascribes the building of the fort to Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. From top you will have a great look of river Kundalika and mystique views of western ghat region.
