    Among all the tourists that visit Goa, a few visit this place as they are not aware that such a fort exists.
    Its a pity that Mario Miranda was not around when this place was inaugurated.
    Had visited this place two years ago.

    I am currently reading An Area of Darkness: A Discovery of India by V.S. Naipaul and he covers some of the fascinating aspects of Indian history like how these forts were used. I can't believe they poured hot oil on the prisoners!
