Majic, only 15 minutes of teasing is allowed here and not more. You've exceeded that. Kill the suspense and write the travelogue fast...

Default You win, the fort and the remaining pictures

Ok, all must be wondering where this place is. This place is in Tamil Nadu its known by the name of Tharangambadi or as the Danish people call it, Tranquebar. My wifes grandfather had a house in this place and he chose to settle down there. What a place to settle down? Beautiful is just an adjective to describe this place. I have been here a couple of times but on every visit of mine there would be either heavy rains due to depression or if not cyclone.

For once when i went there it didnt rain and thats when i didnt bother for bringing the camera as the whether man said that it would rain. So i had to manage with the only camera that i had , Mobile. So please bear with me. Here are the next set, soon will post the pics of the fort

The road to the beach

Nice.. I can't remember where I have heard the name Tranquebar, but its definitely familiar.

The photos do not do justice- a good digicam or DSLR, maybe....

Hey I have been to this place. This is located near karaikal. My dad was posted at Nagapattinam for 2 years so when ever I visit him, I ended up driving through this town. I have heard that this beach is rich in Ozone (ranking next to Swtiz) and the trourist visit this place for this so called Ozone breeze which is good for health. Please continue the travelouge majic.
