It was noon when we reached Diu, we took diversion route from Somnath due to expressway construction. First, we visited Diu fort, built by the Portuguese for the protection, when Humayun the Mughal emperor tried to annex the territory. The fort is huge but not all is open for visitors. The govt offices are built in area which are in good condition. The fort is ruined to a great extend, they still have cannons on display at fort wall. The fort is on the coast and among one of Seven Wonders of Portuguese Origin in the World. There is St. Paul’s and St. Thomas church in the vicinity, the later one is turned to Museum to hold the artifacts. The museum were closed, so we just saw them from outside and went to Naida Caves.
