Abstract

Vasco-da-Gama had reached the Indian coast in 1498 while searching for a sea route between India and Europe. During the second trip in 1504, he had landed at Anjediv island near modern Karwar. He had an encounter with “Timoja” (Thimmayya), the naval commander of Vijayanagara, Whom the Portuguese call a pirate. Gama defeated the Vijayanagara subordinate of the Saluva family at Bhatkal. The next year, the Portuguese Viceroy to India, Almeida attacked and burnt Honawar (‘Onor’ as the Portuguese call it). Thimmayya met the Viceroy and negotiated for friendship. The Arab traders had been dominating over the trade in the Arabian Sea. They enjoyed monopoly of the trade in horses being brought from the Middle-East. Thimmayya was very keen on cultivating friendship with the newcomers in the interest of Vijayanagara empire. The Vijayanagara Empire was very keen on securing horses from the co-religionist Sultans, like those of Bijapur, who were enemies of Vijayanagara. The Portuguese were allowed to trade at the ports of the empire, but their request to have a factory at Bhatkal was turned down.
