About Tharangambadi

King Street's eastern end houses the beach facing Fort Dansborg. The beautiful mustard coloured Scandinavian fort is surrounded by food vendors and ice-cream stalls. The fort has stone walls, and mounted canons – heavily influenced by old military structures. Once home to the governor and other politicos, it now exhibits an odd range of items – whale skeletons, fossils and ancient coins etc. The ancient Masilamani Nathar Temple built in 1305, lies on the beachfront at the southern end of Tranquebar. Complete the walk on the Kavalamettu Street, parallel to King Street at the haunting Danish Cemetery. Even today, names of several Danish colonial officials and tradesmen can be found carved into the whitewashed headstones. For further details, you can find a walking map taking you through the town, here.
