Chapora Fort, Goa

Chapora Fort, one of the most visited sites in Goa, the smallest state of India, was erected by the ruler of Bijapur. It is a massive structure built out of red laterite stones. Flanked by the Anjuna beach, this place draws the attention of tourists visiting Goa.

The Chapora fort was mainly constructed for guarding against the Hindu looters who came to establish their territory in Goa. The fort was later demolished and reconstructed by the Portuguese in 1617. Today the fort is a major landmark in Goa.
