About Bassein Fort

Bassein Fort, which is also refereed to as Fort Bassein and Vasai Fort, is a large fort located at the Vasai village of Palghar District in the Konkan Division of Maharashtra. The name of 'Bassein' came from the Portuguese word 'Baçaim'. The fort now attracts many tourists and historians from all parts of the country and from other nations. The complete Portuguese name of the fort is ‘Fortaleza de São Sebastião de Baçaim’, which means the ‘Fort of St. Sebastian of Vasai’. Considering its age and historical value, the fort is now considered as a monument of national importance, which is protected now by the Archaeological Survey of India. The place is easily accessible through the Vasai Road Railway Station, which is a part of the newly raised Vasai-Virar City. This is an important tourist destination in the Thane tourist circle and also an ideal destination for photography enthusiasts.
