- A very good way of getting around here, is by renting yourself a cycle.
- This is a simple town with not much to do but lie back and relax. The two hotels in town are very nice, both have pools. Carry a book with you along with a camera. The Fort Dansborg as well as the streets of Tranquebar offer enough photo opportunities. The Masilamani Nathar Temple deserves a couple of visits at least. You could stroll on the beach in the evenings and enjoy beautiful skies above at night. Nearby: The Point Calimere Wildlife Sanctuary is a gorgeous little jungle of grasslands, Blackbucks and migratory birds. It is barely 100km south of Tranquebar. It also has an ancient Lighthouse after which the sanctuary is named. On the south of Tranquebar, across the river is Porayar. Peter Anker's country house and gardens or the Governor's Mansion are a couple of places to visit here.

Is Tranquebar good for photo walks?
Tranquebar is small enough for you to easily be able to walk around. If you are a true history buff and want to see all the sites like the remains of Peter Anker's country house and gardens or the Governor's Mansion in nearby Porayar, it may make sense to hire a pedal bike. Needless to say, its your camera's day in the sun!
