The Fort is an architectural structure that is built for its strength and impenetrability. Forts were built as part of a colonial enterprise to fortify their military power and to keep the natives at bay. Today, the ramparts of these forts remain as exotic monuments to a bygone era. Both these legacies of a maritime history have reversed its functionality as well as its socio-cultural and political meanings. Both are located in the realms of commerce, the very purpose upon which the entire colonial enterprise was based on.
