Alibag is about 300 years old city. If you get down at Alibag bus stand...You will be surprized... Why this guy is calling it as a city? No...It is a village (in US terms) and a town (in Indian terms). So don't blame me...I have already warned you !!!
Here is a short essay about the history of Alibag. If you find it too boring..just skip it...For the sake of completeness I am adding it.
Alibag was developed in the 17th century by Sarkhel Kanhoji Angre, the Naval chief of King Shivaji's kingdom.
Declared as a Taluka place in 1852.
