“The Fort”
Review of Danish Fort

Danish Fort
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Very basic inside but some explanatory sheets re Denmark's impact on the area (not a country one thinks of as a colonial power). OK as one was there but not worth a major diversion

Nice walk. May be a canteen where one gets bottled water and refreshment somewhere would have made it more relishing

Very well documented history of arrival of Danes, treaty with the King of Tanjore and subsequent trade off with the British East India Company. However, the museum as well as the fort has a neglected-almost-dilapidated air about it. Wish it were better preserved.

i liked the view of the ocean from the fort; the museum is just OK; the government can actually do better to make it look better and appealing
