  • With ferry ticket Rs 80 and Fort Entry Ticket Rs 25 getting time to visit 45 minutes. Ferry travel seemsed to be funny but sometimes risky since the drivers are not so serious. Built by Malik Akbar.....  more »

  • A Fort standing tall and giving a living proof of proud heritage,architecture,culture and a rich history of My country. Lakes of sweet water in the middle of sea is nature's miracle.
  • I have visited this fort with my friends s on 19-Jan-2019. This is very historical fort located at seashore where you can feel peace and calmness with breeze. There is a ferry services to reach the forts , per person ticket is 61 INR and runs by local Muslims. No security , no rules and regulation if anything happens. Carry water bottles with you when you visit the fort. Prefer not to visit in summers. October to Feb is the perfect season to visit the fort. Do bargain to local guide before you hire them. Guide will tell you their own created story of the fort, do not believe blindly. They will force you to hire guide emotionally but think wisely. This place is safe for family. You hardly get vegetarian food over there, in nearby area.
