Hi Majic,
It is a great Tranquebar or Tarangambadi Fort before Karaikal. It is a great work of the Dutches. I would love to visit again.Let the time permit. I believe there are some ruined forts may be in Parangipettai and cuddalore. Isn't it.

Navan49, i have heard about the Parangipettai fort, but i heard it is in a bad condition. Most of my travel is on train to these parts for the next trip it would be in a car and so i would cover all these places also.

Shishir, i have to make a living also but since you are reminding me time and again, please bear with me for 20 minutes and i will update.

WDM007, the fort was there much before the British had come will find out and let you know today itself

Majic do you have any pictures that were taken inside the fort. I am curious to know the condition of the fort. last time i visited (4 years back) they told that entry has been restricted due to maintenance work.
