Fort George was an extension to the fortified walls of Bombay (now Mumbai) built in 1769; it was in the present-day Fort area, to the east of the site of the former Dongri Fort. The hill on which the Dongri fort stood was razed, and in its place Fort George was built. In 1862, the fort was demolished.
The fort was 1 mile (1.6 km) long and about one-third mile (500 m) wide. Its length ran from NNE to SSW, and it was named in honour of George III of the United Kingdom.
