“History, Architecture and Natural Beauty at one place”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

It closes at 6pm...don't be too late. Best time to visit is 5 to 6 pm. The view of sea is amazing from top of the fort. The fort itself is spectacular and subtly merges into the surrounding. Nice place to sit down staring at the sea and doing nothing. Must visit.

“Nice 2 hour sight seeing trip”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

The fort is worth visiting, it is in perfect condition and a quiet, beautiful area in its own right - allows to have a purpose to visit town from the seclduded resorts by the beach, along with the weaving factory or theyyam (which is more than that)

“Brush with History!!!”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Beautiful location with an awesome view. We were accompanied by a guide who let us into the brief history of the fort. Though weather was bit harsh, yet we had good time at Kannur fort. Good place for sightseeing in Kannur.

“Serene sunset from the fort”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

We reached the fort around 5 pm much before the sunset.
The evening environment is very serene.
The view of the sea from the fort is very soothing.
The gardens are well maintained and our daughter (3 yrs) enjoyed a lot playing there.
The best part was the sunset view from the fort.
Must visit place (visit in the evening) in Kannur.

Reviewed January 10, 2013

A clean and well-maintained fort with a good view of the Arabian sea. You will also have a beautiful view of the Arakkal palace and Mappila fishing bay. A unique experience.....
