Anchuthengu And Anjengo Fort, Varkala Reviews

  • Though fort is small and surrounded by houses but I recommend to visit once. If you are visiting Anjengo fort then visit Anjengo light house too. View is superb from light house. Parking space is not available. Also it's not crowded when I visited so I got good pictures too.

  • A very open and we'll maintained fort. You can walk on the walls on four sides as well as sit and enjoy the view of the sea or the lighthouse that is across the road. It is a perfect place to spend your evenings with family or friends. The wind and the evening sun's rays would instantly bring a smile upon your face. 🙂 There is no entry fee. The history about the fort is displayed in front. Vehicles can be parked on the next curve as the road is really wide there. Make sure you visit the lighthouse as well for an amazing view.

  • Beautiful place. It is being maintained well by the staff employed over there. Approachability is an issue. There's no bus service. Video cameras are not allowed. Knowing history would make you enjoy the place even better. Open from morning 8 to evening 6. No entrance fee is there. Great for an evening walk.

  • A historical build by dutch rulers, now renovated and preserved. Older days they used as Godown to keep spices before loading into ship. Also there is a light house nearer to fort. We can climb upto the top and view from light house is very nice. Don't miss it.

  • So blissful and a quiet fort though it’s very small. The back of the fort facing the sea has been occupied with concrete structures housing civilians thus obstructing the view of the sea from the fort. The garden is well maintained. Try to get to this place during monsoon. Not recommended in summer as it gets sultry and uncomfortable. The approach road is so scenic , especially the drive from here to Varkala. This fort can also serve as a good picnic spot.
