St. GEORGE FORT – THE COOUM – a Cultural mapping – A HERITAGE WALK

31st December 2016.
After the security check we walked through the east gate. The fort was constructed with agali ( water was flowing around the fort ). The fort is facing east and constructed like star, such that the enemy can be attacked from two directions. The complex consists of the present CM’s office, Museum ( which displays the armours, guns, shells, weapons pistols, Guns, Coins, ceramic utensils, National flag, freedom fighters names, paintings, etc. ) IAS officers offices,   The first St, Mary’s Church, Clive’s Residence, presently occupied by Archaeological Survey of India.
