Korlai Fort is one of the best kept secret in Maharashtra Tourism. Not many people know about the beauty of this fort and that is a such a blessing for people like me who like to visit the old forts without being disturbed by the crowds. Infact till very late the Korlai village itself was disconnected with rest of the Maharashtra or for that matter India. Due to that the old Kristi language (variant of old Portuguese Creole) has survived for more than 400 years in this small village. It was only after 1986 that a bridge was built on the Kundalika River, near the Korlai village, and they started getting influenced with the local Marathi language. Even today the residents of Korlai village follow a lot of Portuguese rituals and celebrate their festivals.
