  • I think this is the only harbor we have visited in the world where we had to pay entry.Nothing special.  more »
  • For 100 rupees you can see what happens. We were there when the fish was brought ashore. Good to the weathered heads of fishermen to photograph. Particularly we found the auctioneer aravinth spoke Dutch.
