About of Karnala Bird Sanctuary:

Karnala Bird Sanctuary located on the Mumbai-Pune Highway to Goa, just ten km from Panvel. Sanctuary is located at the base of the Karnala fort paradise for bird watchers. Karnala is a tiny sanctuary, barely 4.8 sq km, home to over 150 resident bird species and about 37 types of avian migrants.

Karnala fort consists of two forts one at a higher level and other lower. At the centre of the higher level is a 125 feet high basalt pillar. It is also called Pandu's tower. This structure was used as watchtower when the fort was occupied however today the ruins of the fort are a popular destination for hiking and tourism. The fort was likely constructed before 1400 situated at the Height 439 m (1,440 ft) ASL.
