Overview

The Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Fort is located near Ponda. The present structure is a modern reconstruction on this location and converted into a park. In the early 16th century, the region around Ponda was ruled by the Adil Shahi Kingdom. They wanted a defense against the ever-expanding Portuguese Empire to the west, and had built a fortification on a hillside at Farmagudi. In 1665 AD, a Maratha rebel leader within Bijapur - Shivaji, led a failed raid on the fort. Due to their recent skirmishes with the Portuguese, the Sultan's forces were weakened and the fort was badly damaged due to the artillery bombardment. Shivaji tried again, this time successfully, to capture the fort in 1675.
