I was woken up by the chirping of some cute birds. They were all over the place picking up some nit bits for their breakfast.

How I wished to be there forever ... I was in some fairy tale not wanting to be back in reality. Such was the soothing effect of a perfect lazy morning at this place.

Time was almost 07:00AM by then.

Slowly got up and walked around the Bungalow trying to take the beauty of the place in.

Took some pictures of the Bungalow on the Beach. This place really gave me some real nice subjects to try my photographic experiments.

By now Jr. PPG woke up and wanted to go in search of Sr. PPG, who had gone out with Star and Jr. Star to the beach.

So along with Jr. PPG, I took a stroll outside the Bungalow in search of Star and the other Angels.

The pictures from the morning walk coming up soon.

Hi Lalu,

Your pictures of the Bunglow, Garden as well as the illusrations have come so nice, i do not dare put up my pictures of them. Still i will share some of the pictures, which i am not shy showing.

We returned from the beach as kids wanted to be in the pool, we met Lalu and Jr PPG on our way back at the gate. Soon the plan got changed for Lalu as Jr PPG decided to join other two girls in the pool under my supervision, I continue to shoot pictures while my friend parks himself on a chair.

Kids in the pool

The photos of the pool are so inviting. I was planning a trip to Neelkanteshwar and a stay at country club (with a pool).
now sad.

Tranquebar

Around 07:30AM I got out of the resort with Jr. PPG for a stroll through the narrow lanes of Tranquebar.

Tranquebar was a Danish post established in 1620. The sea front facing Danesborg Fort, a small roadway, and an impressive 1972 gateway, and the choir singing for the Sunday service in the 1718 church still lingers somewhere in my mind.

I got out for the stroll through the South Entrance of the Bungalow facing the Fort.

My first direction was towards the Masillamani Nathar Temple.


Masillamani Nathar Temple

This is the oldest monument to survive in Tranquebar. This was built in 1305AD. The temple had three mandapas, of which two has been completely swallowed by sea. What is remaining is the innermost mandapam, in a very precarious condition.

Tranquebar

I continued further north of the temple through a small road. The actual road, Salangaikara street was swallowed by the sea during the recent tsunami. The route which I took is a small pathway alongside the rocks (rubble mount seawall) kept for preventing the sea from eating away the land. The place was picture postcard perfect. The houses and gardens looked almost as if in pictures. See for yourself.

Tranquebar

I reached the south entrance of the Bungalow by 08:00AM. Jr. PPG found the other angels and decided to join them for the pool session, and I continued onwards still south.

Immediately I found the Ziegenbalg Monument.

Ziegenbalg Monument

The German born Bartholomeus Ziegenbalg arrived at Tranquebar on 1706 following the orders of King Frederick IV of Denmark to tender religious and social service in India. With the permission of the Danish rulers he built the New Jerusalem Church at Tranquebar during 1718. He had a special affinity to tamil language and showed interest in developing it. He has also translated a tamil book "Ulaga Needhi" (Universal Justice) to German.

Now this monument is in shambles and is being rebuilt.

Tranquebar

I moved still south and came to the Dansborg Fort.

Dansborg Fort

Around 1620AD, Roland Crappe, A danish Navy Captain in the name of teh Danish King bought Tranquebar, and the sorrounding area from the Tanjore King. The Danes then built the majestic Dansborg Fort, whcihc has the unique distinction of having attracted the sea voyagers pasing through East coast to Tranquebar.



The Fort was still closed and hence decided to do some photographiy from outside the fort.

I walked towards the sea and the Jetty where we spend the last night photographing the fort.

I saw "Paw" marks. Man's loyal companion, but he was nowhere to be seen

After checking out the arch I started back to the resort, and walked through the King's street again.

I reached the room, took a nice cool shower and was ready for break fast. It was an english spread with bread, eggs, cornfalkes, fruits and the like. Sat very next to the counter and hogged on to the food. Drank innumerous cups of tea, and made more energy for the day ahead.


By 10:00AM we all finished with our breakfast and got ready to go to Dansborg Fort.


Our visit to the Fort coming up next.
