Tellicherry Fort, Kannur

(1.9/5 based on 60 reviews on the web)
Tellicherry Fort is in Thalassery (Tellicherry) a town in Kannur District of Kerala state in south India.The British East India Company built the fort in 1708 to establish a stronghold on the Malabar Coast. In 1781 Hyder Ali, ruler of the Kingdom of Mysore, was unsuccessful in capturing the Fort in his campaign to control Malabar. His successor, Tipu Sultan, was forced to cede Malabar District to the British in 1792, at the conclusion of the Third Anglo-Maratha War.The square fort, with its massive walls, strong flanking bastions, secret tunnels to the sea and intricately carved huge doors, is an imposing structure. The fort was once the nucleus of Thalassery's development. It is now a historical monument preserved by Archaeological Survey of India.

  • Nothing much to visit. Place is clean and tidy. Worth seeing once. Good place for photography. Kids enjoyed the small garden.  more »
  • The Fort is maintained well but not a family place. You find local youngsters and college students seated on most benches inside the fort killing time. Nothing spectacular. The Fort gives a good view ...  more »
  • Although most of the points we visited during Kannur trip , one spot which is not worth going is Tellicherry Fort. Very small fort, no details, no views . Better to be avoided.  more »
