Historical Place Terekhol (Terecol) Fort ( Goa )

Chaurasi Samaj Kadva Patidar
Historical Place Terekhol (Terecol) Fort ( Goa ) 
Terekhol (Terecol) Fort

Location : North Of Arambol, Canacona District, South Goa
Houses : The Chapel Of St. Anthony
Also Spelt As : Tirakhol
Nearby Attractions : Arambol, Palolem Beach

Fort Terekhol situated on the Terekhol River, lies on the northern tip of Goa, on a hillock overlooking the Arabian Sea. In its courtyard is the century old church of St. Anthony. Maharaja Khem Sawant Bhonsle built the fort in the 17th century but it was rebuilt in 1764 after the Portuguese Viceroy Dom Pedro Miguel de Almeida captured it. The remains of the fort have now been converted into a hotel, the Terekhol Fort Heritage. However, the St. Anthony's church inside the fort still remains. The church however is not open to the general public except on certain occasions such as the annual feast that is usually held some time in May

The Fort
It was a key Portuguese fort for the defense of Goa, on the north side of the estuary of the Teracol River, the most northern boundary of Goa. Hyped as one of the state's most atmospheric historic monuments, it turns out to be little more than a down at heel country house recently converted into a low-key luxury hotel. Decorative turrets and dry moat with commanding views of the estuary and ocean mark the fort.

If ones visit coincides with the arrival of a guided tour, one may get a chance to look around the gloomy interior of the chapel of St. Anthony, in the fort's claustrophobic cobbled square; at other times it's kept locked. The Chapel also has a classical late Goan façade.

How To Get There

Road : The few visitors that venture up to Teracol tend to do so by renting a motorbike and heading back at the end of the day to the relative comfort of Calangute or Baga. If one runs out of fuel, the nearest service station is at Arambol. One of GTDC's daily tours from Panjim comes up here, as does one daily Kadamba bus from the capital; alternatively, the 7.00 am bus from Siolim, on the Chapora river, pulls in at the Querim ferry an hour later.

Places To Stay
Accommodation is limited to the Posh Hotel Tirakhol Fort Heritage. The restaurant downstairs offers seafood, Indian and Chinese dishes, as well as beer.
