Do you know Danish people visited India for trade?

They were also allowed to build a fort to  take care of themselves by the the king of Tanjore.

Taragambadi , earlier known as Tranquebar is a heritage town in Nagapattinam district of Tamilnadu.

Taragambadi means a place of singing waves, right in every sense as this is a coastal town.

This fort and the town they  occupied   is   steeped in history .This town  has ancient churches, Danish fort known as Dansborg which they built right on the beach; now converted to a museum,a few monuments and beautiful age old buildings which transports us to a different era.

This is also known as India’s only Ozone rich beach.

This lies 13 kms North of Karaikal and about 5 -5 1/2 hours drive from Chennai.

Here are a few pictures I captured which I visited recently.
