This fort is still an active military base, though the access is limited, it is still worth a visit. This is the base where Nehru was imprisoned, while Gandhi was was jailed in Pune ( Poona ) I do wish they would make more effort to restore the ramparts which are quite wonderful, but, now have vegetation taking root in...

Very interesting and impressive place. This is the place where Nehru, Patel were imprisoned. We can see the rooms where they were detained, the furniture, cot, chair and table they were using and many of their handwritten works are on display. A part of the fort is kept clean and the remaining part is very dirty. We need to take... More

It must have been a grand old monument at sometime but is crumbling . The room where Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru was imprisoned is relatively better maintained along with old letters from Nehru to...
