Nice Fort

This fort was built in the British Era India. The fort today is very less taken care of. This site is very popular among foreign tourist. The place is located next to Arabian Sea. The sea route was the only route to an access from outside India.

Basically it's a jail and a lighthouse

Basically it's a jail and a lighthouse, from the Golden Era of British times. Best time to visit Agoda Fort at mid of January where no crowd is seen you can explore more sightseeing and spend great day.

Just a visit is good

This is not a big event of sightseeing but on the shore of the sea and with storage facilities enjoyed by the Portuguese in those days. We just made a round of it and got into our bus.
