Cabo De Rama Overview

Ranked 1 of 11 sightseeing in Agonda

Cabo De Rama was the ancient fort of the Canacona taluka of South Goa, which is in ruins at present. The ancient fort has a church, known as Santo Antonio, from where the sea is visible. Constructed on an elevated platform, this fort is also referred to as Cape Rama Fort.

The fort is associated with mythological legends, which state that Lord Rama stayed here with his wife Sita during exile. Moreover, the fort is believed to have been built by Hindu rulers. The Portuguese acquired the fort from the Raja of Soonda in 1763 and repaired it. From the later years of colonial rule till 1955, the fort served as a prison, which was later abandoned by the government.

The remains of this fort include turrets and rusty cannons that are reminiscent of the Portuguese era. However, the church at the site is in excellent condition. The fort lies at a distance of 1.5 km from the bus station of Agonda Beach.

Breathtaking view

Awesome view from this Fort. A little off the track route this place will surely give you the feel of exotic Goa. Lord Rama with Laxman and Sita was believed to stay here in this Fort while in their exile. I loved the way through which we went was quite adventurous. It's a lonely Fort with less crowd and the road also suggest that.

Much forgotten locale

This place is in ruins though a protected site. There is a church within which is much frequented. The view around is amazing. No guides or visitor assistance but there is a eating joint just around the corner.

Very Place Where "Dil Chata Hai" Was Shot

Lets hit turn back from the end of the road at Betul and head back to the village of Assalona and head for the ferry through the cultivated fields. Psst! Did you know that the ferry ride was free! And you can get onto it with your cars, bikes, bicycles! This happens only is Goa! We are now headed to Ramayana country. Lord Rama is supposed to spent some time during the 14 years of his exile in this part. The Portuguese fort that stands in the spot now is named in his honour - the Cabo de Rama. You can get a 360 degree view of the sea and surrounding landscapes from the battlements. Incidentally for the Bollywood buffs, some scenes for the iconic movie Dil Chata Hai was shot here.

Best views of the Beach.

The views to the south of the fort from the southern bastion gives you an endless view of the coastline right up to Karwar. The sound of the waves crashing on the rocks below and the setting sun make this one of the most romantic evenings that you can have. Its a 30-40 minute drive from Palolem and is a must visit attraction best just before sunset.
