Terekhol Fort

Arambol (Harmal)

This historic bastion just across the river from Querim was built by the ruling Maratha dynasty in the early 18th century. It was soon taken by the Portuguese, against whom a failed mutiny was attempted here by a plucky Goan governor-general in 1825. The fort is now a luxury heritage hotel but you can ask to see little Chapel of St Anthony, which takes up most of the central courtyard, or dine in the restaurant.
