nice fort

Its a good old fort which has lot of rich history. but not maintained properly. This could be much more attractive if management would pay attention to this.

Great place to see. A lot of things to see. Location is beautiful. You can see the great view of sea with transparent water. However, it is recommended to take a guide or else will end to walk but will not understand the history behind this.

The fort is spread over a vast area and requires attention of civic authorities to carry out basic maintenance and restoration of the place

Diu fort clearly is remarkable. Think of the bygone era and you will realize how rulers then fortified there territory. The Indian Ocean abound fort is a must-visit place. Today, the entrance has a small Shiva Temple and houses the local jail.
