2.4/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web
Reportedly the first British establishment in the country, Fort St. George houses the oldest Anglican church in India and a museum. Built in 1644, the fortress had been known as “White Town” before it carried the name of St. George--the construction was finished on his birthday. It originally served as a trading post until it became the birthplace of the modern Indian Army. Discover the history of the fort at the museum, which houses relics of the British rule, military memorabilia, and some colonial artwork. See the 4.4 m (14.5 ft) tall marble statue of Lord Cornwallis in front of it.
