Bekal Fort – Largest fort in Kerala

Bekal fort is the largest fort in Kasargod district, in the state of Kerala, India. The fort is spreading over forty acres. The fort is near about 350 years old and it is believed that, the fort was built in 1650 AD by Sivappa Naik of the Ikkeri dynasty. It is also believed that the fort was originally made by kolathiri Rajas and later captured by Sivappa Naik. The important features of this fort are the tank with its flight of steps, the tunnel opening towards the south, the magazine for keeping ammunition and the broad and wide steps leading to the Observation Tower which is a rarity.

Bekal fort was not a center of administration for no remains of a palace is found within the Fort. It was built for fulfilling the defense requirements. The holes on the outer walls of the fort are so remarkable that they are specially designed to define the fort effectively. The fort faces the Arabian Sea. Bekal fort stands on a promontory between two long classically beautiful palm fringed beaches. The main attraction nearby the fort is Centuries old fort, virgin beaches, and pristine backwaters etc.
