  • Incredible views and impressive construction but sadly poorly maintained. History on the fort is very light, with short descriptions available, but nothing in depth. I have no idea who is leaving so many reviews about the grand maintenance of the fort but it was depressing at times during the visit. Trash is piled up in corners, locals have being using a small path to get into the outer walls and party, lots of litter and small campfires dot the outer wall. Old trash and unwanted household items can be seen stashed away behind grates and previous displays from years past are just piled up under overhangs. No attempts to remove or prevent tress from growing in and on top of walls is causing damage to the structures as well.
  • Serene and well kept. Good exhibition in the lower level.
