Cabo de Rama Fort

Cabo de Rama Fort

Cabo De Rama is situated 16 km north of Agonda beach at the south end of Colva Bay in Canacona district of Goa. Also known as The Cape of Rama, it takes its name from the Lord Rama, as it is said that he stayed here during his exile from Ayodhya. The fort has seen some of the most gruesome battles fought in its history. Used as a prison by British, it had 21 guns, a chapel, military barracks and few quarters.

The main entrance has been restored and yellow washed, but the fort now lies in ruins. There is a small chapel inside the fort where people still come to pray. The white church and the black fort provide a photographic opportunity of stark contrasts. Cabo De Rama fort gives a stunning view of the sea from the western side and is a great place to spend some time with oneself and tranquillity.
