History about Cabo de Rama Fort:
The fort gets its name from Lord Rama, the Hindu King from Ayodhya. According to mythology, the King and his wife Sita stayed here while they were in their 14 year exile from Ayodhya – story of the Hindu epic Ramayana. So the fort is thousands of years old, making this one of the oldest forts in western India.
There were a few battles between the local Hindu and Muslim Kings, but the fort finally fell to the Portuguese in 1763. But the Portuguese rulers lost interest in the fort after its importance diminished, and abandoned it. The fort was later turned into a prison, but was abandoned again.
It used to be called Rama Killa. Renamed Cabo de Rama by the Portuguese rulers when they took control.
My experience at Cabo de Rama Beach, Viewpoint and Fort:
The way to the Cabo de Rama viewpoint is smooth and scenic. This place is unlike then what we heard of party Goa.
When we reached the viewpoint, nobody was there except us. The view was insanely stunning! Every view was as if someone has painted and kept for an exhibition. I sat over there and enjoyed magnificent view of the Cabo de Rama viewpoint until my heart was satisfied. As it was only us at the viewpoint, we took our own time for the next move.
