  • Execilant place. British first fort at India in Surat. At taco River.
  • 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.
