If you want to do a photo shoot then it is really a great place... although it is not very well maintained by any authority... the view from the top is really great in the early morning and evening!

A good place to find rustic spots to do a photoshoot In the morning or the evening. There is a spot near the dock yard to click some good pictures, and as u enter the fort on the top u have a decently good view, and importantly avoid traveling alone here, always come, with some one along.
