This is in continuation of Danish Fort Dansborg of 17th Century at Tharangambadi Coast – Part 1.
In the vicinity of the Fort Dansborg, there are churches, ‘The Bungalow on the Beach’ hotel, schools and other old structures including a neglected Hindu temple. It is surprising to note that the temple on the beach is totally neglected.
Minimum two hours are required to go around the Fort and the museum. The museum is in the upper level of the Fort. Here are the photographs of some of the exhibits in the museum in Fort Dansborg.
