Why to be avoided, because of the ghat journey you to have do to get there, the fort is not worth that kind of a drive. Otherwise a fairly managed fort, but completely commercial with stalls all over a near the fort. The build quality as our other forts is marvellous and you keep wondering about the architecture/ designing they used in those days without the IITians. If you have a passion for understanding more about history about forts, etc. and you love driving on real ghats, go for it, else please avoid it.
