Hidden Gems of India

By Pamela Mukherjee

I could not help but amaze at how appropriate the name was and I started reading about the hidden gem of India, Tiracol fort.”

The fort had ownership of Maharaja Khem Sawant Bhonsle of the 17 century. Now it has been converted into a luxurious property.


The Settings

It is precisely an hour away, 42 km from North of Panaji, easily reached by ferry from Querim. 


It has a total of seven rooms and suites designed in Portuguese style. The interiors & features give the fort an outstanding look. 


Rooms are named after the seven days! 2 Suites: Saturday and Sunday & 5 Deluxe Double Rooms: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday.


Who could ignore the lavish buffet with sumptuous drooling food?


The fort’s elevated situation and the scenic views from the ramparts are mesmerizing. From the verandah, a view of the sunset is an experience.

The all-white marble sinks is a dream for someone who loves white interiors like me. I’m dreaming of pampering myself with lavish food & views.

Churches, and Chapels
