  • This fort is one of the good place to visit with Kids. Fort from outside is looking great and stories from local guides, we flabbergasted because of Maratha history connected to this fort. - If you planning to go, be well prepared to carry enough water and you will get only 1.30 hrs to roam in fort. Your same Boats will get you back to the land. - Keep some cash handy because there is very less mobile signal therefore mobile pay will not work. - Parking charges is too much for one Car. - Local guide from boat was best who explained all history about fort.
  • Great place to visit, awestruck with its architecture and its historic relevance.. Fresh water lakes lie dirty and tourists have littered the place.. If we keep our historic monuments like the British have, we would be having many great historic places to visit. Avoid rainy seasons as boats will not be available to take to the fort.
