The lure of spice trade attracted many European powers to the Indian subcontinent in the 17th century.Among them were the traders from Denmark-Norway, fuelled by their Viking adventurous spirit. Compared with the powerful Portuguese, Dutch and British powers,the Danish presence in India was of little significance as they presented neither a military nor a mercantile threat.Yet their footprints are marked...

The Bungalow on the Beach in Tranquebar is definitely very good place to stay ... probably the best place in Tranquebar. However, the rooms are not that great as hyped. This is probably due to the reason that no other better place than this exists there. Staff are courteous and tried their level best to satisfy us ... but they...

This place ticked off all the boxes and expectations that it promised.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Facing full east, The Bungalow on the Beach gives you your personal encounter with the sun, sea breeze and spray. Time becomes irrelevant here when you stand facing a glorious sunrise with : a 14th century Pandya temple on your left and a 17th century Danish fort to the right. Come taste ‘eternity’ in a stopover ! The restored Bungalow stands as a reminder of Ove Gjedde, a Danish Admiral sent by the king of Denmark with two ships. They were well received by the Nayak ruler of Tanjore, and given this territory for trading. Then Dansborg, the Fort of Tharangambadi – a solid example of Scandinavian military architecture, was established nearby to store and export pepper to Denmark. The oldest Lutheran church in India was built here in 1706. Today you can drive in through a beautiful gate of the majestic King Street, past Lutheran churches and grand bungalows of the Danish Governors’ and the British Collector’s residence. Re-live marine history; visit the temples of Kumbakonam and Tanjore. The town remains a glorious tribute to architecture from across the world. Tranquebar is reputed to have the thickest ozone layer in India which is ideal for relaxation as it rejuvenates and helps all those who want to prolong their life. ... more   less
