Description
Tranquebar is reputed to have the thickest ozone layer in India, ideal for relaxation and rejuvenation and it helps prolong one’s life! Today you can drive in through a beautiful gate of the majestic King Street, More and just before the Lutheran churches and grand bungalows of the Danish Governors and the British Collectors, stop at the Gate House, with rooms around a courtyard.
