about diu fort

With grey and stone-coloured bricks piling on top of one another to form a gigantic structure midst the blue water of the sea, Diu Fort is a mesmerising spot in this small town. Situated at the jetty of Diu, this fort is best seen at night when it brightens up with illuminating lights. As the surrounding region is enveloped in darkness, this structure stands out and proclaims its beauty. Located within this fort are the Lighthouse and the Diu Jail, making the place even more desirable for tourists.

Constructed in the 16th century, after the Portuguese signed a treaty with the then ruler of Gujarat, this fort is an important historical sight. With trees and other floras in and around the fort and the swaying blue water on the horizon, a view of the area from the top of the fort cannot be more enchanting. Before you leave this fort, do check out the canons, placed inside the fort in all their glory.

the view of Kala pani jail, situated in centre of sea, is just fabulous. Its the jail made by britishers, so that prisoners cant escape out. The fort itself hvs many thinks to look upon. One of the best place to visit in Diu.

The stairs that lead to the waters in the fort are a breeding ground for crabs. Look closely and step carefully and you'll have an interesting class on marine life!
