  • The fort is one of the surviving forts in Kasargod. The structure is intact but rather shoddy management. It was completely overgrown with grass in January. All this or even worse can just not dampen ...  more »

  • You will get a very good view from here. But there is no facility, even to sit. There is no one here when I visited. 1 km walk from Melparambu Bustop. Its really very sad to see such a beautiful fort like this. No one is interested to maintain this
  • Old fortification that is not maintained well. The view from the fort overlooking the ocean is amazing with green coconut trees and the blue ocean filling your eyes wherever you see.
  • In earlier days, the Chandragiri River was considered to be the border of two powerful kingdoms Kolathunadu and Thulunadu. When Thulunadu was captured by the Vijayanagara Empire, the Kolathunadu kings lost the Chandragiri region to them. During the decline of the Vijayanagara Empire the area was administratively looked after by the Keladi Nayakas of Ikkeri. When the Vijayanagara Empire fell in the 16th century, Vengappa Nayaka declared independence. House boat cruise through the picturesque chandragiri river will be an unforgettable experience for the tourists.
  • Hostoric place.. bt neglecred by govt
  • Under renovation at the moment. But it is worth a quick drop As the view is amazingly calming The confluence of sea and river is blissful And you have your guide to help you The hidden underground routes and it's rich history
