Revisiting Madh Fort (Versova Fort)

Madh (or Versova) fort is located on Madh island, just across from Versova over the creek. A great place for a short cycling ride along the coast.

I had visited Madh fort on 1st January 2013 as a result of my new year resolution of cycling to all the forts and other historical sites in and around Mumbai. Madh fort is normally kept closed and is not open to visitors. However they do let out the fort for shootings of films and television serials. On this weekend I had the pleasure of riding with my cousin Hemant who was visiting from the US, and we did a short ride to Madh via Marve. I could not resist taking him to the fort, and was pleasantly surprised to find that it was open and preparations were on for the shooting of some television serial.
