Siege of Anjadiva (1506)

The Siege of Anjadiva in 1506 occurred when the Muslim ruler of Goa fought to expel the Portuguese from the Fort Anjediva they had established there.[1] Adil Shah of Bijapur was the invader. This, combined with other reasons, forced the Portuguese to leave the settlement.[1]
