This fort gained popularity for its unique architecture portrayed in many Bollywood films. However little known fact is that this fort was built beside a river named `Chapora` which humanity has seized at present. Can someone share more about the architectural history of this fort?

Before the Portuguese, Adil Shah, rulers of Bijapur had built a fort. After the reign of Adil Shah, the Portuguese took control of the fort and rebuilt it in 1617. The Portuguese ruled Chapora Fort for more than 150 years.
