“Inaccessible”
Review of Fort William

Reviewed 25 August 2013

Many of the important historical sites in the Maidan such as Fort William are behind the walls of the Military and consequently inaccessible. This is a problem in India. Many tourist sites are closely restricted and often when you can see them photography is not allowed. India des need to be more tourist friendly in this respect.

We were very disappointed not to be able to visit Fort William, which is what used to be known as "the Black Hole of Calcutta" as it is now a military base & therefore NO Entry & NO photos.
