Its a nice historic place to visit. Still a portion of it is being used as a sub jail. It was made to protect the Portuguese population from the others. A self sustaining fort. Secure and disciplined with presence of police. Peace is here.

Not often do you find a fort that is in such a great shape as the Diu Fort. That is thanks to the fact that the Portuguese ruled Diu till 1961. It has a number of bastions, a host of well oiled cannons that look...More
