Let us introduce you to some of the major forts from Mumbai which you may be or may not be knowing earlier:
#1. Bandra FortHistorically, called as ‘Castella de Aguada’ Bandra fort is located adjacent to Taj Lands End. Built in 1640’s by Britishers, the fort still has some elements remaining. It is not very far from Worli village. The Bandra-Worli sea link lies between these two areas. You can watch a beautiful sunset from here.
#2. Worli FortThere are stories of the fort being built by Britishers in 1675 while some argue that it was built by Portuguese. But after the reconstruction in 2008-09, its look has been changed.
#3. Sewri / Shivadi FortIt was built by Britishers in around 1680, which happened to be a picnic spot for them as it is surrounded by greenery. It has a nice pentagonal room along with a long domed corridor and linear vaulted structures.
#4. Mahim FortThere are different stories of when it was built but in 1516 Portuguese took over the authority of this fort. In 1661, the Portuguese ceded the island of Mahim as dowry to Charles II of England.
#5. Vasai FortThis is also called as Fort Bassein, which was a central base for Naval and Docks during Portuguese Rule in the 17th century. The historic old fort was also a pride for Shivaji Maharaj and later it was won by Chimaji Appa.
#6. Madh FortAlso known as Versova Fort, this was built by Portuguese in the 17th century, which they lost to Maratha empire in 1739. Its front is surrounded by sea view.
