Indian Flag Was Hoisted In 1954 By Freedom Fighters

Tiracol Fort is also known as Terekhol Fort, across the Terekhol river from Querim is the little hamlet of Terekhol, with Tiracol Fort situated on a plateau above it and in North Goa's Pernem taluka about 42 Km from Panjim. The early 18th-century fort was captured by the Portuguese in 1776 from the Bhonsles, a Maratha clan. It was the scene of an uprising in 1954, when a group of Satyagrahis, Freedom fighters hoisted the Indian Flag on its ramparts in an act of civil disobedience against colonial rule. The fort's high battlements face the sea, looking across the waters to Fort Aguada, Arambol and Chapora. The Chapel within the fort, with a statue of Christ in the courtyard, is usually closed but the atmospheric Terekhol Fort Heritage Hotel offers some excellent views. Ancient ruins will, let you know many things about future.

The fort is great and epic

The fort was great but very hot during day time. Prefer going there in evening. The fort was very big. There is different stalls for you to refresh but they are not sufficient.
