I went to see the fort for my daughter , but it was very much crowded cos of Janmastami . If anyone is planning to go during this duration , even parking would be a problem near the fort area .

My gosh such a beautiful fort but alas surrounded by filth and it needs a major renovation. Trust me if gets renovated and a liitle marketing will help Diu boom in the space of tourism.

Fort is not in use right but has very much historical value. The scenery around the fort is beautiful. Even its constructed to protect from sea attack. You cant deny if you are in Diu.
