Gateway of the Palace of Yusuf Adil Shah Travel

Adil Shah was a Muslim ruler who once controlled the land of Goa from Bijapur in Karnataka state. The empire of Adil Shah was attacked on numerous occasions by other Kings however, he held on to Goa until the Portuguese arrived and snatched Goa from him.

Adil Shah had however, left his mark on Goa by constructing a beautiful palace in Goa. The palace constructed in a mix style of Hindu as well as Muslim architecture was one of the main attractions in Goa until it was demolished in 1820 for construction of better houses. The archway/gateway of pillars carved out of basalts holding up a horizontal lintel are all that was left of the once beautiful palace. The palace, prior to destruction, was the residence of the Portuguese Governor until 1696.
