This fort is in the middle of the sea and takes you back in time. The boat ride is very adventurous. You have to Rs 50 per person. These boats have the most primitive way of sailing, they sail with the direction of the wind. The sea was a lil choppy when we stepped into the boat and the struggle of the 4 boatmen to find the right direction was a thing to see. The fort was visible at a distance. It's magnanimous. I was in Rome sometime back and the Colosseum had given me the same feeling. It's a pity that the government does nothing to protect these ancient monuments. The boatmen tell you mesmerizing stories of shivaji and the fort on the way. It takes about half an hour to reach the fort. Inside the fort it's all ruins and thick jungle. You can hire a guide for 300 bucks who will show you around but it's not worth and you may want to look around a bit by yourself. On the top of the fort you can still see some canons that look out to the sea. I sat by them and thought how many enemy ships must have been bombarded by these canons!

India’s second largest city, Mumbai, previously known as Bombay, is home to a few hundred captivating contrasts and creeds. Mumbai is bursting with frenetic bazaars, shaded avenues thronged by commuters and roads brimming with traffic. The dynamic Maharashtrian metropolis is also a powerhouse of India’s business and trade sectors. But regardless, the city’s ethos lies in its biggest railway station - Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, in people-watching and eating bhelpuri by the iconic arch of the Gateway of India and in the exquisite Taj Mahal Palace, that holds a decade worth of stories about both Bombay and Mumbai. A few other places to visit in Mumbai are Nariman Point - a legion of office blocks in the heart of the city and the Prince of Wales Museum for its eclectic architecture. Watching the sunset with a plate of vada pav at Marine Drive and experiencing the vibrant festival of Ganesh Chaturthi at Juhu Beach are few of the best things to do in Mumbai. One must also travel to Mumbai to be dazzled by the country’s biggest, and most prolific film and media industry, wherein if you’re lucky, you might stumble upon a Bollywood star or two.
