Korlai Fort Bike Trip

Korlai Fort (also called Morro or Castle Curlew) is a Portuguese fortification in the town of Korlai, Maharashtra, India. It was built on an island (Morro de Chaul) which guards the way to the Revdanda Creek. It was meant as a companion to the fort at Chaul. At this strategic position the Portuguese could use it to defend their province which stretched from Korlai to Bassein. Vestiges of the Portuguese occupation are manifested in the distinct dialect of the Korlai villages inhabitants which is a Luso-Indian Portuguese Creole called Krist.

The fort is 2828 feet long, and its average breadth is eighty-nine feet. The enclosing wall is 5′ 3″ high and has 305 battlements for guns. It is entered by eleven gates – four are outer and seven are inner. At the north point, within pistol-shot of main battery is the water cistern named Santa Cruz – major source of water. The area within the fort walls is divided into three enclosures by two lines of bastioned fortifications. Each of the seven bastions bears the name of a saint.
