By this time, the Maratha’s under Shivaji Rajah the great had established their own naval power. Hence the clash between Sambhaji and
Portuguese was both novel. Due to their superior arrangement and actions of Portuguese wanted
to march ahead. The Portuguese power fought to setback Sambhaji Rajah .On the contrary in more than
3 wars against Portuguese, Sambhaji Rajah was successful.
The victory agaist Portuguese was
based on following grounds–
1)The Maratha navy was well prepared and always ready to fight any naval attack.
2)Sambhaji use to plan every war in a strategic manner.
3)The Maraha power was strong in naval warfare and it had established edge over
the Portuguese naval plans.
On this background Rajah Sambhaji was able to capture strategic core areas like Vasco from Portuguese.The Portuguese were known for their coastal habitation and they had constant eye on
Indian coastal area after their entry in Goa.They were expanding their power through trade and commerce at one had and on the other had they were also indulging in local power politics by taking benefit of conflict between Moguls and Marathas.Portuguese power was one of the significant foreign powers who were having sway over
the coastal area of Goa, Diu and Daman.Chhatrapati Shivaji had put a strong resistance to the Portuguese power. Sambhaji continued the same policy and in 1682 he had planned to constructa fort on the island Anjandive near Karwar. Shivaji had attacked Portuguese by establishing a fortat Khanderi.Portuguese felt that history should not repeat and they captured Anjandive island and constructed a fort there, which annoyed Sambhaji and brought bitterness in the relations.Till then Rajah Sambhaji had overcome this situation by an aggressive attack over the Portugal Naval Forces.
