Diu Fort - Review
Back in 1535, this huge Portuguese fort must have been one of the most impressive sights in all of the land. It has a double moat, an array of cannons on the ramparts, and a lighthouse 32 metres high that is basically the highest point in the city. The fort was built to defend the city from the invasions of Mughal Emperor Humayun. Seen around the fort's premises are the remnants of Venetian style Gothic homes. Inside the fort is a famous chapel, the Chapel of Our Lady of Rosary, built in the 17th century. It has gilded wooden panels depicting scenes from the lives of saints. Photography is not allowed inside the chapel.

Diu Fort, Diu Reviews
Nice place. Nice historical place where old fashion Cannon are there. Near the seashore and gives a very nice place for selfies, at the same time good information about the history is given. The Lighthouse gives a very nice idea. You can see your very nice pictures from the top. Lots of tourists are coming. Entry without any cost attract many many tourists. Cleanliness is nicely observed. A very nice place to visit with the family.
It's an old fort obviously, but yes it's on the shore of the sea. You would be able to see great waves coming on stairs of this fort. It has an old church on the upper area where you can climb on the some windows and have a great view of the whole sea. It has a power house near by it.
Diu fort is the main attraction of Diu and won't disappoint you. It's a vast area and will take more than an hour to go around. It has beautiful and scenic view points especially on the bastions. The canons are still intact but not ready to fire. A must visit place in Diu. The fort also houses a jail in it, the sole jail in Diu.
Diu fort covers a huge area and it's fun to watch the historical place. It takes a lot time to cover the entire area. Also the place is so airy as it is surrounded by sea. You can enjoy the view of the jail floating on water. So if you are into history you will love the place. As I'm not so history lover I am rating 3 stars.
A beautiful serene place surrounded by sea from three sides. Very peaceful,green and windy. Best time to visit 4-6 pm to get a stunning sunset view from the light house top.
