  • The 17th century Danish Fort at Tranquebar or Tharangambadi is located right on the Bay of Bengal. Worth a visit.

  • Great place to hand out with friends. It has a beach attached to it so you can enjoy scenic view of the shore. You will also understand the history behind the fort during the Danish invasion and British period. The fort also has a museum inside it where the historic importance can be understood in detail.
  • An old Danish Fort that is located at the seashore. The entrance fees is about ₹5 and inside a museum is also there where some artifacts, paintings are kept. Nearby beach is there but no one is allowed to bath as sea waves are high here. Good place to visit for a day. There are set of buildings nearby like governors bungalow which was used during British rule.
