About Vattakottai Fort

Visit the Vattakottai Fort to get a slice of the Travancore kingdom in the 18th century. It was primarily meant to serve as a defence against external forces that could have come via the sea route. Made with granite blocks, this fort goes right into the sea on one end and bordered by the Western Ghats on the other. Such a strategic location makes it particularly interesting. The beach here comprises black sands, which adds to the effect of the place. Today, it is protected by the Archeological Survey of India. The fort was made under Capt. Eustachius De Lannoy, who was a naval officer in the Dutch East India Company. Placed on the southern end of the country, it is a must visit when in Kanyakumari.
