>Destroyed Zamorins of Calicut
>Captured Daman & Bombay. Made Goa headquarters
>Destroyed the ancient Kapaleeswarar Temple to build a Church over it

Their only bad luck, just 14 kilometers south of Mangalore was the small settlement of Ullal - ruled then by a feisty 30 year old woman - Abbakka Chowta.

>Admiral soon returned, badly injured and empty handed
