MANDVI.

Ma'ndvi, below the northern spur of Tungar hill and fifteen miles north-east of Bassein, lies on the old trade route from Sopara up the Tansa valley to the Tal pass. It has a picturesque ruined convent and a Portuguese fort. [Nairne's Konkan, 60.] Among the inscribed stones in the Collector's garden at Thana there is one from Mandvi. It records a grant by a Silhara king, but is much worn and hard to read.
