This fort overlooks the Bay of Bengal, but the museum inside does not seem to be well maintained. The fort is basic and there is not much to see.

This historical piece of Danish colonial times is being renovated and revived nicely by the Danish and Indian societies, and is becoming very attractive and lively to visit. The museum needs some liveliness, and the need of having toilets for the visitors is urgent.
