    Kolaba/Kulaba Fort

    Inside the Fort

    The fort, completely surrounded by water, was built in the mid to late 1600's by Shivaji Maharaj.

    Because the fort is surrounded by water, you can only reach it in low tide. Many people walked through the thigh high water to the fort - a 30+ minute walk. We decided to take a carriage/cart pulled by a horse. It was such a blast. The water was just about up to the horse's belly and we wobbled around in the back. It took about 15 minutes or so to reach the fort.

    The fort walls are 25 feet high and there are 2 doorway entrances. The main one faces north-east and has beautiful carvings of a peacock, elephant, deer, and tiger.

    We walked around inside the fort - there were some beautiful and interesting temples including one of Devi Padmavati, (surrounded by wildflowers) and a small beach area. There were ruins as well and all sorts of great windows/doors to photograph. We walked along the top of the fort to check out the cannons and made our way around to the front of the fort. It was getting dark so it was back to our horse and driver for the ride back.

    Low tide to the Fort

    Poney cart to the fort at low tide

    During low tide you have two options to get to the Fort, one is walking which is very doable, I did it with a six year old. The other option is the horse cart, or probably better to call it a poney cart and they wait one hour for you to visit the fort.

    When the tide is high you take the boat to the fort. They will take you to the Fort wait one hour and then take you back. There is plenty to explore without going into the part of the Fort you must pay an entry fee. Only an issue for foreigners.
