Fort Bassein, Mumbai: How To Reach, Best Time & Tips

About Fort Bassein

Situated about 55 kilometres from Mumbai, Fort Bassein is a splendid example of robustness and architecture, being constructed in the early 1400s. Originally constructed by Bahadur Shah, the Sultan of Gujarat, the fort has seen many masters.

The name of the fort comes from the word “Bacaim” which is Portuguese. It has been ruled by the Portuguese, Marathas, and the British in old times. At present, the fort is under the protection and care of the Archaeological Survey of India, although not much effort has been made to conserve the heritage site.

The fort is in ruins and you can see vegetation in some parts of the fort. Come here to marvel at the medieval architecture and vastness of the fort, and spend a morning going around the place, for there’s much to see on the inside of the fort. You can see marks by sharp chisels etc on the walls of the fort as well, indicating the times of attack in old times.
