The Fort is a must visit place for everyone visiting Daman. The top of the fort provides beautiful view of the Arabian Sea and the fishermen colony. Lots to explore and walk. Do visit.

A short visit to the fort as nothing much to see. Unkept and unmanaged. Even the tourist board outside had lost it's color and was unreadable. Can be avoided.

You can go to the fort, through the bridge that goes towards moti daman. It is very simple. The main fort entrance is on the other side.
