Margao- Terekhol Fort

The Margao- Terekhol Fort trip brings alive the story of courage and revolution. The Viceroy of Goa, the son of the land - Dr. Benard Peres De Siva revolted against the Portuguese in the Terekhol Fort area. Although he lost the battle to the Portuguese Army, his heroism is still lauded by the local people.

Located on the banks of River Terekhol, the Terekhol Fort was established by ruler of Sawantwadi. In 1746, the Terekhol Fort was seized by the Portuguese force under Viceroy Dom Pedro de Alameida. He renovated the fort and also built a church in the fort complex.

Today, the Terekhol Fort has emerged as one of the greatest tourism destinations in Margao.
