The Bekal Fort

I hope everyone had a gr8 weekend!! I have few more things to share about Kerala. The next day we made a trip to The Bekal Fort!!! I have never been to a fort before! This place was beautiful.. it was large and green. I have seen this place a lot of times in movies.. but witnessing it with my naked eyes was a different experience.

Bekal Fort is the biggest fort in Kerala and its spreads over 40 acres. It is more than 300 years old. The design of the fort tells that it has been built only for defence purpose!

This is the viewing tower.

A closer view of the above picture.

It has a very long border and the road goes on and on.

The view of the arabian sea from the Fort. This Fort has been built to protect the country from invasion thru sea.

Lately this place has been a major attraction for tourists and nature lovers! I had a nice time taking pictures and listening to stories of this place!
I hope you enjoyed watching these pictures! Have a gr8 week!
