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
One of the largest fort built by British East India Company in Kerala. This was located in Thiruvananthapuram near the beach one of the largest Fort in Kerala and oldest also.

Monsoon is one of the best season to visit the place. The government makes a great effort to keep the face clean and quit
symbol of its turbulent past. The history books consider this the oldest settlement of the East India Company in India. They got permission to build a fort in 1690 and the Anjengo Fort was built in 1695. It became an important focal point for trade and communication for them.
An old fort with rich heritage. Well maintained. Lush green grass & shrubs add to its beauty further
A historical monument located near to sea. There is two workers to do work and they also help us to know more things about Anjengo Fort. There is a whole which leads to sea. Totally a good history place. I like it.
