Located in the Canacona region of South Goa, Cabo de Rama is a 17th-century Portuguese fort associated with the legend of Ramayana. It is believed that Lord Rama, Goddess Sita and Lord Lakshmana lived in the fort during their 14-year exile. Though most of the fort is now in ruins, it is a popular tourist attraction as it offers a stunning view of South Goa.
Cabo de Rama Fort was built by the Hindu Soonda Rulers, however, in the 1760s; it was captured by the Portuguese and used as a military base and later as a prison. It, therefore, is also a historically significant monument in the country. There is a small chapel - church of Santo Antonio- at the entrance of the fort which is still used during the annual feast.
