#WWIM13 Fort Jesus Instameet

Published On: April 24th, 2016

Every few months Instagram hosts World wide Instameet, where instagrammars meet to share photography ideas and learn from each other. The weekend of April 22nd to 24th was WWIM13 which was themed Life on Earth.  A meet up to celebrate the wonders and beauty of our planet , Life in Mombasa hosted #WWIM13 at Fort Jesus . The cliff on which the Fort Jesus stands is slowly being eroded by sea waters; a wall is being erected to prevent the waters from reaching the museum’s foundation. We met to document the historical Monument and show the world our heritage.

Fort Jesus is a Portuguese fort built between 1593 and 1596 by order of King Philip I of Portugal, located on Mombasa Island to guard the Old Port of Mombasa, Kenya. It was built in the shape of a man, and was given the name of Jesus. Wikipedia
