Vattakottai Fort, which translates to the 'Circular Fort' is a seaside fort near Kanyakumari, the southernmost tip of India. The fort is largely made of granite blocks and today, a part of the fort even extends into the sea. The Fort is now a protected site under the Indian Archaeological Department and a major renovation of the fort was undertaken recently by the Department.
Spreading over an area of 3.5 acres, the Vattakottai Fort is one of the must-visit attractions of Tamil Nadu. Located only 7 km north of Kanyakumari in the Agasteeswaram Taluka, this fort is a truly enhances the beauty of Tamil Nadu as it rests on the coast of the magnificent Bay of Bengal.
Even though the aesthetics and architecture of the fort are renowned, the primary purpose of erecting this fort was utterly different. The historical significance of the mighty fortress clubbed with its perfectly scenic location has made it an actively visited tourist spot. A panoramic view of the Bay of Bengal Sea on one side and the other decorated with the majestic hills of the Western Ghats, bright blue skies with cotton clouds and plains of beaches with sparkling black sand makes this place mesmerising.
