Microsoft Rewards Bing Homepage Quiz: ‘Corjuem Fort, in what is now the Indian state of Goa, was built by colonists from which country?
It’s understandable if you chose ‘England’ for an answer, as the British colonial occupation of most of India gets more attention. But for centuries, the Portuguese occupied a portion of India as well.
Colonists from Portugal built up a preexisting fort here in 1705. Corjuem Fort, seen in this aerial photo, was abandoned in 1894 but never demolished. It is now a protected historical site, and during the right time of year, the fort can look like it’s being eaten by forest.
The correct answer is Portugal.
