Published by The Maritime History Society, on behalf of The Maritime Heritage Foundation, 2001 - Political Science - 210 pages
The Coast Of Maharashtra Has A Very Rich Maritime Tradition. Trade And Commerce Flourished From Ancient Times. Sopara, Chaul And Other Places On The Coast Were Famous Ports And Trading Marts. A Great Deal Of History Was Fashioned Along The Coast. The Mohammedan Powers Had No Interest In Sea Power And None Cared To Build A Navy. The European Powers Thus Found It Easy To Establish Themselves On The Shores Of India. On The Coast Of Maharasthra The Portuguese Had Establishments At Chaul, Bombay And Bassein. They Also Built A Number Of Forts. The English Started A Factory Of Surat, But Soon Shifted To Bombay And It Was From Here That They Started On That Road Of Political And Military Ambitions That Led To The Establishment Of An Empire. The Book Has Information About Some 170 Heritage Sites Situated Within 5 Kilometers From The Coast. Forts, Temples, Churches, Mosques, Dargahs, Lighthouses, All Have Been Covered. Photographs, Maps, Diagrams, Pen And Ink Sketches Add To The Value Of Book And Will Be Useful For The Tourist Or Enthusiastic Trekker.
