    Photographer's paradise,has some exquisite views. It's in the outskirts of the city, so it's safer to visit during the day time. There's no shops surrounding by, so carry all the essentials with you. Overall a peaceful place and must visit if you're an nature admirer.

    Pros: Very good Place for photo shooting Fresh back water and beach can walk through Back water and reach seashore - good experience but take good care for your foot by your quality footwear under water. enjoyed home food from one of fisher man family - delicious with sea foods and native taste boat to sea with life jackets - nominal cost cons no security, no lights in nights prefer to go as Groups, avoid going as couples concern is not from Native peoples there. thread is from travelers who may cause trouble.

    Only ruins of the fort can be seen. Nice picnic spot for people from Chennai and pondicherry. Local fisherman offer Backwater boat ride in fishing boat at reasonable price. Scenic beauty esp in the early morning but it will be ruined by open defecation by the local people in the early morning.

    MOST SCENIC location around chennai! If you are person who would admire sea and nature, this is an must place. Though it quite distant from Chennai city, you will have a worthy time visiting it. A photographers paradise too!

    A photographer's paradise! An amazing place for couples to cement their togetherness. A beautiful place for group/family (short) outings. Though destroyed from its original form, the remains themselves offer a good piece of history's marvel. A nice place for a day of peacefulness!
