It's a historical place.. It's built of rock stones.. It's near the sea shore which is a great attraction for the place.. There's a pool over there.. The place is so peaceful and natural.. So we have to maintain it like that way.. Children will enjoy the place because they can go here and there but don't let them walk on the wall..
A real surprise place.. Its a serene, quite fort.. Well maintained inside.. But you will like and love the scenic sea views and gutsy winds refreshing you.. A five star place to spend at least half an hour
We can get the information about ancient war technology. It's a watch tower for army in ancient times. Good place for photography. Nice hygienic place to view sea behind the big stone walls. Grass lands, stone steps, and building in stone are there.
There is nothing much to see here, but if you are a. photography enthusiast then you must visit this place at the upper corner of the fort there is a open place with tree in the middle which is a perfect place for photography and the green lawn nearby being another and the view of the ocean and the shore is mesmerizing.
The fort look simple on entering. But when you go inside you hear the sea roaring.. That's when u get the motivation to climb the tall stairs just to glance the amazing view. It's surrounded by sea, sand, coconut tree and wind Mills. It's amazing just to stand there and watch..
