Worli Fort

Wednesday, November 9, 2011


We decided to have some refreshments before heading to Worli Fort. We headed to a Tibbs Frankie outlet at Shivaji Park in Dadar for refreshments, before visiting the fort. Worli Fort is located in Worli village.
Fortification
To reach the fort we have to pass through the tiny bylanes of the village. On the way, you will see the fisherfolk cleaning their nets. The smell of fish pervades the entire place. 
Worli Sea Link from the Fort
This fort, built by the British in 1675, looks more like a watchtower than a fort. The entire place can be viewed in 10 minutes flat. It is in very good condition and houses a gym and a temple. It was constructed to keep a watch on enemy ships.
Entry to the Fort 
The view from here is amazing. You can see small fishing boats, the Bandra Worli sea link and a row of skyscrapers in the distance. After Worli Fort, it was time to see Mahim Fort.

Forts in Mumbai are Sewri Fort, Bandra Fort, Mahim Fort, Madh Fort. Sion Fort


Caves in and around Mumbai are Mahakali Caves, Jogeshwari Caves, Mandapeshwar Caves, Kanheri Caves and Elephanta Caves
