Sahapedia Heritage Walk- A Siddi Creation - An Expedition to the Belapur Fort

Located near the mouth of the Panvel Creek, the Belapur Fort is one of the few surviving pieces of Siddi architecture in the city of Bombay. The fort traces the history and transformation of Navi Mumbai from 1550 through all its ruins and other pieces of cultural and natural heritage. The strategically-sited fort precinct is the best example of sea fort architecture that developed under the rule of both the Siddis and the Portuguese.  It is also an interesting place to explore the exotic natural heritage situated in the area.

We are often under the misconception that to visit an archaeological site, we have to travel to an obscure place and hunt for routes to reach an architectural marvel.
