Thalassery Fort

The magnificent Thalassery fort is located on a cliff facing the sea at Thalassery Beach.

It is also known as Tellicherry Fort. A remnant of colonial rule in India, the fort was built in 1703 by the British East India Company. The fort was instrumental in the military as well as commercial affairs of the British. Now under the authority of the Archaeological Survey of India, the fort accommodates a colossal gateway as well as a small lighthouse, the latter overlooking the enchanting sapphire sea.

The fort has a stunning entrance door, walls adorned with mural paintings, secret tunnels leading to the sea and gigantic, chiselled walls and doors. The fort also has a gallery with pictures of caves, monuments and ancient paintings. The structure of Thalassery fort comprises laterite with holed walls and strongholds strategically placed to defy any attacks and intrusions. Using techniques which have stood the test of time, Thalassery fort was built using a mixture of quicklime, egg white and jaggery. Thalassery fort is a must-visit for a glimpse of the many colonial influences in Kannur.
