Tattva Adventures invites you all for an easy trek to Korlai Fort and Lighthouse on 1st Oct, 2016.
Korlai Fort is a Portuguese fortification in the town of Korlai, Maharashtra, India. It was built on an island which guards the way to the Revdanda Creek.
It was meant as a companion to the fort at Chaul.
An account of significant event contributes to the great history of the fort. In 1521, Portuguese had established a strong control over the coast,
and took permission from the first Burhan Nizam. They erected a port over here, and built a machi here. Korlai was initially known as the “Rock of Chaul”.
Here they set a strong control by controlling fort of Revdanda. In 1594, there was a chaotic situation after Burhan Nizam died.
The Portuguese tried to take advantage of this by building fortification here. But Hussein Nizam perceived the danger and decided to fortify this
mountain himself. The Portuguese opposed this and they signed a treaty. It was decided that inseam would not build a fort and the Portuguese would
not pose him any threat on the seas. However second Burhan Nizam succeeded in building a fort here.
Once his Sardar Fattekhan cannoned the walls of Revdanda. The Portuguese were short of soldiers, and ordered more men.
They then attacked the fort by pervading in the base village. They won the fight and captured Korlai. In 1602, a garrison of 8000 was present on the fort.
Thus it was clear that the Portuguese had to involve a considerable part of their army to protect this place. Hence they maintained the citadel,
the ramparts, storage house and the machi, demolishing the remaining work. In 1684, Sambhaji Maharaj made an unsuccessful attempt to capture the fort.
In 1739, Chimajiappa made a strong attack on the fort and captured it. The Marathas changed the names of bastions. San Diyago was named Pushti and San
Francisco was named Ganesh. Finally it became a part of independent India.
