  54. 54. Korlai Fort (also called El Morro or Castle Curlew) The fort is Th f t i 2828 feet long, and its average breadth i eighty-nine f t The enclosing wall i 5' 3" f tl d it b dth is i ht i feet. Th l i ll is 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 f tifi ti b ti d fortifications. E h of th seven b ti Each f the bastions b bears th name of a saint. Th t the f i t The two westward t d bastions are named San Diego (after Didacus of Alcala) and San Francisco (after Francis of Assisi). The others are Sam Pedro, Sam Ignacio, and Sam Philippe. The top f the Th t of th hill is bastioned as well and i and surrounded b a parapet. It h a l i b ti d ll d is d d d by t has large rain-water i t cistern with three mouths, each one-foot wide, and the ruins of the magazine and a church. The church was built in 1630 for the use of the army and was functional until 1728. There are th Th three P t Portuguese inscriptions. O i i ti One, over a ddoorway i th centre and hi h t part of th in the t d highest t f the fort (see picture), reads as follows: This castle was commanded to be built by the Viceroy of India D. Felippe Mascarenhas in November of the year 1646 and Fernao Miranda Henriques being Captain of Chaul, and was finished in May 1680, Christovao d Ab fi i h d i M 1680 Ch i t Abreu d' A Asevade b i C t i of thi f t d being Captain f this fort. The inscription is surmounted by a cross with a coat of arms having the Portuguese stars in the centre and surrounded by seven castles. Other inscriptions over the main entrance and over an altar in the chapel are worn out and undecipherable. D i th b i f M th rule, some of th lt i th h l t d d i h bl During the brief Maratha l f the names of the bastions were changed but now the only indication of their presence is some dismantled shrines.
  55. 55. Korlai Fort (also called El Morro or Castle Curlew) This fort was built in 1521 by the Portuguese with the permission of the Ahmednagar Sultanate.  y g p g In 1521, taking advantage of the confusion in the aftermath of the death of the Burhan Nizam the Portuguese tried to take over the fort. However the sultan retaliated and sent some of his  best men to reclaim the fort. Subsequently a truce was reached in which the Ahmednagar sultanate occupied the island and no further fortification of the island took place. Only a  sultanate occupied the island and no further fortification of the island took place Only a wooden cross remained on the island as a sign of its former rulers. However in 1594, Abranches, a Portuguese captain with 1,500 soldiers and 1,500 natives took  possession of the fort. The besieged soldiers of the Sultanate tried to block their way by putting  possession of the fort The besieged soldiers of the Sultanate tried to block their way by putting a dead elephant at the main gate and a dead horse at the inner gate. But in the end they had to  surrender. The Portuguese won the fort but not having enough men to stand guard there chose  to destroy it leaving only the central tower and a battery intact. On the inland side ‐ the only place where it was susceptible to be attacked it was protected by a  ditch and could only be accessed by a drawbridge. The main entrance was guarded by a bronze  lion and the highest tower by a bronze eagle. It housed 7,000 horses and as much men. lion and the highest tower by a bronze eagle It housed 7 000 horses and as much men Some parts of it were rebuilt later but now had a garrison of only 50 men. The church within the  fort was used for worship on Sundays and holidays. Korlai fort was also strategically very  important as it guarded the mouth of the bay. Sambhaji the son of Shivaji tried to take it over  important as it guarded the mouth of the bay Sambhaji the son of Shivaji tried to take it over but failed and had to withdraw his forces on 6th December, 1687.The fort was taken by the  Marathas who held it from 1739‐1818.
