“A good experience”
Review of Danish Fort

Danish Fort
Reviewed 27 May 2014

.
The fort looks like similar buildings in Denmark .
Therefore, the Danish Fort is an exciting experience.

It's great to see Danish documents and coins from the time when the Danes were in Tranquebar.

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.
