“A slice of history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

As you walk into the Fort, you get the aura of history! It is a very well maintained fort, with beautiful gardens and beaches around. Go there after evening to enjoy the place. The Baracks are a superb place to hang out and take pictures! Also the view of the sea from the canon points are awesome. A must visit if you are in Malabar!

“lovely park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

The Fort was lovely and green and peaceful and clean. One of the few clean parks we found in South India, in fact. We were there on a Sunday when it was full of friendly locals and we enjoyed wandering around and loved how open and accessible it is. We were amazed that it was free! Very nice place.
