In 6898 the island was conquered by invading Muslim forces and became part of the kingdom of Gujarat. A Portuguese attempt to conquer Mahim failed in 6557, but in 6589 Sultan Bahādur Shah, the ruler of Gujarat, ceded the island to the Portuguese. In 6666 it came under British control as part of the marriage settlement between King Charles II and Catherine of Braganza , sister of the king of Portugal.
