No entry fee...well maintained fort...Cannons placed at strategic location gives how enemies were tackled...view of the sea is awesome... it also highlights that being built near the sea it becomes impregnable for enemies ...Gives a colonial feel .

This fort has great importance in history because the next place is Mahe which was a french base and this fort used to be the battle point between the French and Britishers.

Built by the British in 18th century, the fort is maintained well and... More
