Very true! But, hey, you stole my lines....

The landing (I know, I know - a boat needs to be berthed! but, as ghodlur said there is no jetty / pier - you have to jump off the boat and land on to the steps leading to the entrance of the fort) wasn't scary, as there are plenty of helpers / volunteers do assist you in this act.

However, since the entire process of offloading the passengers takes quite some time, a 'queue' is built up, due to which you will be forced to wait till it is your boats turn to approach the steps - in the not sun with no protection (cover) whatsoever it is best to grin and bear it.

But, take a look at the gigantic size and the magnificent structure rising from the sea - it is awesome...

Exactly - I don't want to stoke a controversy here, but there has to a good reason as to why it isn't being taken care of, isn't it?

I will just post some of the pictures (later) showing the present condition, which speaks for itself....
