I just packed my back & went to the bus stop for a quick sightseeing place & the conductor was shouting Kasargod, so I just boarded the bus & went to see the Bekal Fort which was made famous by the bollywood song “Tu Hi Re” from the Mani Ratnam movie “Bombay”. About the fort is over 300 years old .The largest & the best preserved fort in Kerala. It stands on a hillock jutting into the Arabian Sea & provides breath taking view .Built by Shivappa Naika of Ikkeri dynasty .In 1763 the Mysore ruler Hyderali captured it.
