A fun, interactive walk with contests to explore a Portuguese landmark
The quaint Vasai Fort in Vasai village of Palghar district, built by the Portuguese, recently got much attention when the international Pop outfit, Coldplay shot a video there. Despite the attention and reckoning of the Internet user of its existence, there is a lot more to the fort to explore. According to Architails, a bunch of five architecture students from Thakur College of Architecture.
To highlight these treasures, the year-old group have organised a heritage walk titled Stories Unwrapped that will take you on a trip of the fort. “As students, we were fascinated by this structure. The monumentality, the history and the structures around are all very interesting and one wonders why it has not got any importance,” says Amey Dalvi, one of the group’s founders.
Sandeep Dahisarkar, an archaeologist and historian, will guide the group and introduce them to the unexplored stories realted to the fort. To make the walk more exciting, organisers have also arranged for a photography and sketching contest and a competition of anecdotes from the walk titled, What did the walk tell you?
