Chapora Fort

Chapora Fort

Constructed by the ruler of Bijapur, Adil Shah and was reconstructed by the Portuguese around 1617. Today the Chapora Fort stands as one of the most popular attractions in the Indian state of Goa. The Chapora fort was built essentially to keep watch on numerous Hindu raiders and plunderers who came to establish their territory through Goa.

This majestic fort had been created out with red laterite stones and initially was named as Shahpura, meaning ‘the town of Shah’. The Portuguese built the fort in royal style and it also had some tunnels which acted as an escapade in the cases of emergencies and ultimately deserted the fort around 1892. After their abandonment, they never conquered it again.

At present, there are ruins present at the place which are rendered a spectacular view from the Vagator and the Anjuna beach. His historical fort is an attraction in Goa, which also renders picturesque views of Vagator and Anjuna Beach.

Nestled in the midst of vast oceans, craggy cliffs and dry grasslands along with the Vagator is also famous for its old Portuguese style mansions, built in the colonial era. The place is a must-visit spot in Goa, providing the cool and calm breeze with a spectacular view of the massive sea.
