  • Execilant place. British first fort at India in Surat. At taco River.
  • Restoration work going on Need to maintain historical sites. સુરતનો કિલ્લો In14th century Mohammed Tughlak was the ruler of Surat. At that time he built the Old Fort in Surat. There was a reason to build the Old Fort which was to strengthen the city against attack by the Bhils. Malva king Shri Chatrapati Shivaji tried to attack twice on this Old Fort of Surat. Mecca is the pilgrimage place for Muslims. In the time of Mughal rule, Old Fort was used as a gateway of mecca. It is famous for its beautiful architecture. To see the heritage of city many tourists come to Old fort at surat which is witnessed of many historical events of Surat. There are many museums, gardens and other places to see near Old Fort which attracts too many tourists. Location : Near Tapi River , Surat #Trekkers_Journey
  • it's the vintage asset of history of Surat city SMC should take great care of it. It's been maintained in very poor condition. Like no one cares right now. Because if you would see it you can't assume it's importance of it. Just When I pass from there I feel shame.
  • Phase -1 will open for public in 6 months. And phase -2 is under construction.

Where to stay in Surat

Though off the radar for the bulk of international visitors, Surat stills stands as one of the largest and most populated cities in the country, so it has its fair share of accommodations. Stay in one of the guesthouses and simple hotels right in the center of town, close to the textile markets, for a particularly characterful experience with proximity to the main commercial sights. If looking for luxury, head to the banks of the Tapi River, where large resorts and hotels sit by the water a little farther out of town.
