The Thalassery Fort is a formidable historical monument established by the East India Company as a testament to the might of the imperial rulers. It stands proud in the small town of Thalassery, situated 22 km from the Northern district of Kannur. Once the nucleus of Thalassery's development, the fort was built in 1703 by the East India Company, which had already established its settlement on the Malabar Coast in 1683. The arresting square fort has gigantic walls, massive, intricately carved doors and secret tunnels leading to the sea that make it a delight to explore.
