An uphill climb. First thing I noticed as an Asian, its steps from the Islamic museum were quite elevated. I have to extend my legs in an upward motion to go to each step. So I'm kind of assuming these were designed for taller people. It gave me a good cardio exercise and break some sweat.
From afar, I can hear a well English-speaking performer singing a classic song.
As soon as I got there, the first thing I looked closely was the texture and composition of the walls and walkway. It kind of looked like its a mixture of metal and stone no wonder it withstood the harms of nature and time.
I was amazed by its enormity and rigidity. I feel lucky to have stepped on this great piece of architectural piece of history that has been through a lot. The huge stone slab with inscriptions and leaned against the walls looked like it had so much to tell. At one end towards the interior of the ruin are tons of photos displayed by a local artist.
At one point, I just stood there leaned against the wall as my eyes roamed the worn and torn down structure. From the window opening, a view of the sea and uniformly-lined row of houses can be seen. Being situated on top of a hill and some age-old banyan trees around also gives this cool breeze to rest the weary visitors-- it's refreshing and relaxing!
