Cabo De Rama Fort

Cabo De Rama Fort

‘Inside the fort is the small Chapel of Santo Antonio which is still in wonderful condition as it is maintained by the devotees.’

The Fort of Kholgad or Cabo de Rama which guards the mouth of the River Sal fell into Portuguese hands around 1763-64 after Hyder Ali’s troops besieged the fort and took over the territories of Ponda, Zambaulim and Canacona to drive out the then King of Sonda Immodi Sadashiv. The fort has been allowed to run to ruin, more the pity, since it commands a majestic view with the cliff dropping steeply to the sea.

Inside the fort is the small Chapel of Santo Antonio which is still in wonderful condition as it is maintained by the devotees. With its rusting Portuguese canons and crumbling walls, Cabo de Rama wears a desolate windswept look, but it is still a tourist attraction for the view on offer, and one worth restoring.
