Kolaba Fort in the distance...amazing experience to wade through the waters
Poor horses....this one's still a better sight. When the tide gets high...poor animals pull the carts neck deep :'(
Splash splash go the wheels
Really pity those animals
Nearing the fort
Taking a longer route to the fort
The main entrance
The entrance...ASI charges Rs.5/- as fee
The history behind the structure
Elephants above and the lord of them below
Thats how you wade through the shallow sea
Easy walking around
Leads to a fresh water reservoir....but much cleaner.
Didn't venture into this one.
A wide shot...imagine the activity in its days
The fortifications standing tall
Tiny window through a small underground room
The huge bastions
Wide view of the bastions and the baileys
One of the tanks. Like the well of Murud Janjira- this too holds freshwater..but then in this state, what's the use?
View from the other side
A wide view of the bastions and the inside area
The seaside door
Want to camp here overnight...unfortunately night stay not allowed
Closeup of the sea-facing door
...now an outside shot
.....and the inside view
Nice wide baileys to walk around
Light pillar outside the Siddivinayak Temple
The two temples (Shri Siddhivinayak on the left) and Lord Hanuman on the right
Lord Hanuman Temple
...and there he is!
A wider shot of the bastions facing the other side of the sea
Wide angle view of the inside
Interior wide angle of the fortification and the baileys
One of the two canon's
Fire it there
Thats our speedboat
...and off we go
Up and down surfaces
Was too lazy to remove shoes...waded through wearing them
Speed boat rides (100 bucks per person).
Firing up the engine
The sun all set to hide behind the fort
.......gone. End of the day's duty! THANKS FOR WATCHING!
