Thalassery Fort

Edapally Panvel Highway (NH-17), Palissery, Thalassery, Kerala 670103


The fort, though originally established as a godown for cardamom and pepper, became a strategic centre for the military activities of the British.  It was there that Arthur Wellesley planned out his strategy to fight the great warrior, Pazhassi Raja. During the 1780s, when Hyder Ali tried to conquer Malabar, the fort witnessed more fighting and bloodshed. From the fort premises, one can view the nearby Holy Rosary Church. Other centres of worship in the vicinity are the Sardar Palli mosque and the Jagannatha temple.
