One of the old forts. Maintained in good shape by archeology department. Capture wonderful view of the sea from top. Don’t forget to climb on top of the watch tower adjacent to it
It's my own village. And the photos I shared is from the top of light house adjacent to Anjengo fort. Its damn view. You can't miss it if you're in Anjengo.
Beautiful view especially from lighthouse nearby. Make sure to go there way before 5pm. Both the lighthouse and the fort closes by 5pm.
Historically important and well maintained fort. Another importance is that first fort built by British.
Quaint and small spot to visit. Not much to see in a way, but access is free so that's a plus. You can visit the lighthouse nearby to get a birds eye view. It's very close to the beach which is deserted save a few of the local residents.
