Inshore explorations have been carried out in the Malvan region of Maharashtra (India). Present article discusses the triangular and grapnel stone anchors found during the explorations at Sindhudurg and Padamgad Forests. Eight anchors are found, of which there are triangular and three grapnet-type, used to construct the jetty along with the locally available sand stone. The two remaining grapnet-type anchors are erected on the jetty for mooring purposes. It is found that none of the anchors were present on the fortification wall.
