About Chapora Fort in Goa

The commanding view of vast Arabian Sea from the ruins of Chapora Fort in Goa captivates visitors. It’s the spot where the gang of Dil Chahta Hai spends a few moments contemplating about their lives.

Located in the taluka of Bardez, the current structure of Chapora Fort in North Goa was built by the Portuguese on the same site of an older fort. Built in the year 1717, the fort is held by different rulers and kingdoms over the years. In the late 17th century, Chapora Fort was a stronghold of the Marathas while it served as a military outpost for the Portuguese a few decades later. It eventually fell to the Marathas in 1739 but lost its military significance over time.

Today, Chapora Fort in Goa overlooks a quiet stretch of Chapora Beach where families, backpackers, and honeymooners can be seen enjoying. Being perched on a hill, Chapora Fort has a beautiful location that attracts scores of visitors every day. This ancient laterite fort overlooks the mouth of the Chapora River. This enduring historical monument offers spectacular views of the Arabian coastline and sunset views.

The wall fortification follows the natural slope of the hill and its bastions are large enough to put cannons. The main entrance of Chapora Fort is small and narrow so that the enemy wouldn’t be able to enter easily.

The fort came into the limelight as it was one of the shooting locations in Goa for the 2001 Bollywood movie Dil Chahta Hai. The number of visitors to Chapora Fort certainly increased after the film. It is often called as ‘Dil Chahta Hai Fort’, by avid movie fans.

    • Trip to Goa

      Liked: 1. Followed the arrangements to the dot. 2.Aeroplane hospitality /travel triangle staff followed up with us to make sure everything went smoothly 3.Hotel Riva Gold Coast was neat and clean. Staff well behaved , especially Sanket and Valsan from restaurant and Vikas from reception Disliked: 1. Driver was a complete ripoff - drove us to a isolated restaurant where everything was priced exorbitantantly - has his own itinerary - will not listen to what have to say or ask 2. Food though tasty and hygienic became bland and boring after a day . Since they serve the same menu each day

    • Trip to Goa

      Very good tour and travel agency Based on their very positive reviews, we booked 3nights & 4-day from 1st aug to 4th aug-19 GOA tour with travel triangle agent travel surety. Vacanza grand in executive room was booked near calagunte Beach & the rooms were great, felt very spacious. The rooms and bathrooms were really clean and in great condition. Hotel Staff was also very courteous, We had informed travel agent about the food preference as we are pure vegetarians, and it was very well taken care at the hotel, great thanks for that. Anniversary cake was arranged & it was like icing on the cake for joy, my son enjoyed the food at the restaurant. Food was yummy & great at vacanza grand inn. Every day executive from travel triangle / travel surety used to esquire me about the trip, which made us feel special & comfort and give us more confidence on travel triangle/ travel surity. Two days sightseeing trip (North & south Goa ) was arranged by the agent , and it was fantastic . only complaint is the local tour organizer stop for lunch at the bad & unhygienic hotel, which dont have washroom facility, which will very difficult for women travellers, please advice/instruct local acb service agent. I found the service and response of this travel agent Mr,Aman Gupta was excellent. Easily 5-stars. Even my whastapp queries were promptly responded , would love to book again with same agent.

    • Trip to Goa

      Provided 4 star hotel, but no hot water on one day, no pool available. Cab drivers are comes late and intrested to drop by time before committed. I am very dissatisfied with one driver, he knows that I have less time, and he looks us boat ride which kills almost two hours of time, later he dropped us back because our schedule, after that he is not shown interest to resume trip after completion of our work. Literally we paid lot of money to cover single place on that day Travel agent assistance, he is always available on phone to guide us

      Rooms given from Second day was good, Restaurant service was excellent , Mr Deepak has always ready to help in restaurant, only issue we have face was room given on first day was worst and we have asked our agent to cancel our trip, Unique trip maker person (GAURAV)has not given full detail while suggesting property , and Head of Operation Mr. Amit came in picture only after Booking was done, Unique Travel interest was only to have our Photograph with their Banner, at every spot Driver was asked by Mr. Amit to take our photos, i strongly object to use our trip photo for Unique Travel Marketing without my consent, and if i have seen the same , have to take necessary action.
