Sarkhel Kanhoji Angre or Sarkhel Angre was the first notable chief of the Maratha Navy in 18th century India. He fought against the British, Dutch, and Portuguese. Despite the attempts of all these foreign powers, he remained undefeated until his death. This Samadhi of Kanhoji Angre is a seemingly withering dilapidated fort but is still a tourist magnet. It is an eight faced structure with beautiful ethereal carvings on its pillars.

Kanhoji Angre Samadhi is a beautiful tourist Attraction in Alibaug. It was built in memory of the great Maratha Admiral Kanhoji Angre. The samadhi has eight faces and the sculptured pillars, which have been dilapidated, however stand firm. Built on a black basalt platform, and having partly eroded, the main Chhatri reflects the elegance of the Maratha style architecture.
