Vattakottai Fort - Review
The Travancore kingdom has left a mighty reminder of its power through the VattaKottai Fort. This court designed in a circular frame is an interesting site to visit near Kanykumari. Made of Granite and partly extending into the sea, this monument has braved the odds over the years and still stands strong on the coast of Kanyakumari. This fort was set up for naval defense in its time.
Today it is a popular tourist destination. The experience of being on this old fortress is both serene and powerful at the same time. The history of the place is very interesting and action packed whereas the sea and the green grass has a calming effect on you resulting in a surreal experience. The fort is only a short distance from Kanyakumari and hence a must visit on your trip there. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Kanyakumari itinerary 1 day.

Vattakottai Fort, Kanyakumari Reviews
Awesome View!! Come and click some nice pics with beautiful background. During summer this place may be too hot. We went there around 2 PM. I would suggest to go there around 5-6, during the evening. So that you can enjoy cooling breeze.
A very good fort with a lot of historic background. Well maintained. The view of different oceans combining can be seen in some places. Has a nice panoramic view. It's very open. Sunsets would be very beautiful. To take camera inside you need to pay Rs 25(non refundable).
Awesome place to visit and a must watch place if your planning for kanyakumari trip , most of the people ignore it just by seeing outside view of the fort. But really u find eye catching view once u enter the fort. Above the fort u have scenic beauty of sea, its a paradise for photo lovers and you can enjoy the sunset as well. Fort entrance closes after 4
Awesome place.. Had a wonderful time there.. can rest under neem trees inside the fort.. better to go in morning or evening.. No entry fees tickets required.. but has car entry tickets Rs 30..
Very calm and scenic... Once can see the horizons of sea and time travel to the ages of fort imagining enemy ships being under vigilance from the fort.... Great place for photography.
