Generally fascinated by forts and Mehals but DIU Fort was a bit thumbs down. Way too crowded and there is literally nothing to see in except gives a great view to take photographs

Good place to visit go after 3 pm. Do not go in sun not lot of tress or shades. Jail inside is still functional and it is not allowed to see the jail. No guides available so internet is best to gain some info.

A beautiful place. The vast fort with bastions and many more are tourism -worthy. A vey big fort and it requires a minimum of an hour to complete the visit. An excellent view of the sea adds to the majesty of the fort. A good parking place is available. A must see for all ages.

A big fort entering into the sea. Beautiful place. Its a portugese fort which has a long history. There are beautiful sights from atop the fort. One can see the sea very clearly upto far distance. There is a armoury also.

Just one of the spots in Dilu to spend some time, else nothing special. If you have less time to see multiple places then spend less time here.

That was the most idiotic thing I came across. If you are carrying SLR camera; you are informed that photography not allowed but you can click away with your mobile as much as you wish. Who visits a tourist place and doesn't want a few memories to click and share. Hope the authorities realise the basic fallacy and rectifies it
