About this place -


Ghodbunder Fort, Thane, Maharashtra, India

Ghodbunder Fort, Ghodbunder village, Ghodbunder, Mira-Bhayander, Thane Dist., Maharashtra.

Ghodbunder Fort is currently under the control of Archaeological Survey of India. The Fort is located near Ghodbunder village that lies near Vasai Creek. Portuguese began fortifying the small hills of Ghodbunder since 1550s for the protection of this port. The place was called Ghodbunder because Portuguese used to trade for horses (Marathi = ghode) with the Arabs and the area was used as trading port (Marathi = Bunder). The Portuguese name for the fort was Cacabe de Tanna and it was under their rule until 1737. Godbunder fort took several attacks from Maratha and Peshwa rulers before surrendering to forces of Chimaji Appa in 1737. It was under Peshwa rule for a while but British captured the fort in 1818. British made it the headquarters of district administration for the East Indian Company, with a district collector stationed in Thane. Currently the fort is in ruins but restoration work is started by Govt. of Maharashtra. It is a nice trekking and cycling destination.
