There's hardly a tourist (or even a local) who hasn't posed in front of the CSMT station building or walked through the fashionable lanes of Kala Ghoda or clicked a selfie in front of Flora Fountain. But ever wondered why it’s called ‘Fort’? On 'Mumbai Fort: Past To Present' Bharat Gothoskar founder of Khaki Tours and Khaki Heritage Foundation tells you the story of the Fort of Bombay - when and why it was built where it stood what happened to it and how its vestiges still remain.
