The Dongri Fort or the Dongri Hill Fort, locally known as the Irmitri Fort, is a fort in Mumbai, India. It is located in the Dongri area. It is in a dilapidated condition, since the 1739 Maratha Invasion. Since then the Locals and the Church have been looking after the Maintenance of the Fort. It was repaired once, and is repaired well enough. Every year, during the month of October, the feast of Our Lady of Fatima is celebrated here. Many People from far off Villages come to offer their prayers here. One can take a 360 degree view of the surroundings from this fort, with the Arabian sea at the West, the Vasai fort at the North, The Borivali National Park at the East, and the Essel World and Water Kingdom at the South.
