. These forts were namely the Goa
Fort, Kanakdurga Fort and the Fattegad Fort, whose only remnants today is the ramparts facing the sea.
History of Fattegad Fort
Built during the reign of the Maratha Empire
, the Fattegad Fort was constructed by Khairiyat Khan and was under the control of Tulaji Angre. The feud between the Peshwa
and Angre were at its peak and so to regain control of the fort, the Peshwas colluded with the British
against Tulaji. The fort was captured by Captain James and handed over to Peshwas but in 1817, the British forces captured the Fattegad Fort from the Peshwas.
Currently in ruins, the only parts of the fort left standing are the walls and the bridge joining with Kanakdurg. The Fattegad Fort is presently under the administration of the Government of India
