It was okay. The fort is under renovations so we didn’t get a chance to go inside but the view was amazing. I’ve been inside once before, I really wanted my bf to see the inside.

The guys there want to give you a tour, it’s nice to hear the history but of course they all want money. You can’t go into the fort only around it. It’s big local hang out place on weekends.

This was a lovely escape away from the heart of the city. The site is currently being repaired; so we were unable to view all parts of the fort ... I hope to visit on my next trip.

I visited here once in 2015 and it was pretty neat. Went back in May of 2016 and was disappointed that the restoration work was actually destroying the existing structure. There was rubbish everywhere, inside and outside of the Fort... even the local guides didn't...More
