Bekal Fort situated in Kasargod,the northernmost district of Kerala is spread over forty acres and has got massive walls of about 12 metres in height built of laterite stones. The fort is more than 300 years old and is believed to have built in the 1650’s by Sivappa Naik of Ikkeri dynasty.
The land side of the fort is surrounded by ditch. When we entered the fort we could see a large observation tower with a wide ramp and a well maintained garden. As we started ascending the tower, slowly the blue sea started becoming visible and my gawwd..that was a mind blowing view..
