Check Out This Beautiful Serene Fort Just 500 Meters Away From Sion Station

If you live or work around Sion, you might mistakenly think that the excitement begins and ends at Sion Circle and eating butter chicken at Hardeep Punjab. But that’s just because you haven’t seen Sion Fort yet.

Just about 500 metres away from Sion station sits the Sion Fort. Built under the British regime between 1669 and 1677 atop a conical hillock, Sion Fort marked the boundary between British-held Parel island and the Portuguese held Salsette Island.

It’s a blessing in disguise for those looking to hear the chirping of birds, feel the gush of clean air and a bird’s eye view of the city. You will be welcomed by a beautiful stair-cased garden known as Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru Udyan. The garden has numerous arched bridges/staircases leading to greener patches. If you look up, the fort will be looking right back at you with all its might and grandeur.

As you look for a path to get to the top, you will cross beautiful pathways, countless stairs at finally make it to the top. Like always the view will always totally be worth the effort and the sweat a funny reminder of all the skipped workouts. The premise is thronged by college students {there’s a college nearby} but it’s not much of a bother, to be honest. There are clear skylines to be viewed and long breaths to be taken in. It pinches us a little {a lot} when we venture back into reality.

The fort has numerous walls atop {may be they were watch rooms?}, which makes it a great spot to play a game of hide and seek.
