Bekal Fort

Bekal fort, which is the most important monument of the region, is the largest and the best-preserved fort in Kerala. Believed to have been built in the 1650's by Sivappa Naik of the Ikkeri dynasty. Later it changed hands with Hyder Ali of Mysore and the Britishers.

The sea bastions, underground tunnels and the observation tower are impressive. An old mosque is situated very near the fort, which is believed to be built by Tipu Sultan.

This imposing structure rising 130 ft. above sea level has a history of 300 years, which adds to its interest as an excavation site. Due to its historic relevance, the fort is controlled by the Archaeological Survey of India.
