Vasai Fort ruins of a medieval garrison

Vasai Fort is a large fort overlooking Bassein Creek. It is also known as Bassein Fort and has a lot of history behind it. The fort is spread over 110 acres. The ramparts are in reasonably good condition. We can climb up the fort walls via staircases. Some old cannons can also be seen. There is a small Hanuman Temple, probably dating back to the times of Chimaji Appa, the Maratha general. Archeological Survey of India looks after the fort.
