What to see:

This fort is currently a victim of encroachment, as other forts in Mumbai are. In the remnants we can see the ramparts on the front side and a stone inscription indicating that the fort was built in 1737. There is no way to the fort; one has to climb the 8 feet tall wall to reach inside. There we can see the entrance, stairs and “Fanji”. The fort interiors are in a bad plight and garbage resides within.
