Bekal Fort, Kerala

Bekal Fort, Kerala

Located in the beautiful town of Kasaragod at the northern extreme of Kerala, the Bekal Fort is the most well-preserved and the largest in the entire state, bordered by a beautiful beach. 

This fort, which dates back to the 17th century, is shaped like a giant keyhole and has tall observation towers that offer a splendid view of the Arabian Sea. It is said that, two hundred years ago, the towers were occupied by cannons of huge sizes. It also offers easy access to an old mosque that is believed to have been constructed by the valiant Tipu Sultan of Mysore. 

Built by the past rulers of the ancient Kadampa Dynasty, the fort changed hands among several royalties over the years, including the Tipu Sultan, the Vijayanagar Empire, the Kolathiri Rajas, and the British East India Company. 

Today, this fascinating fort and its surroundings, including the water sports facilities, hill stations, and the backwaters, have become a favorite shooting scene among filmmakers.

Given what it has to offer, this fort is truly a fascinating place to visit for tourists of all ages during Kerala Holiday. If you are planning a Kerala vacation, make sure to get a more memorable experience by making this spot a part of your itinerary.
