This is one of the most enduring Kerala forts, as it withstood the attack of Hyder Ali, the ruler of the Kingdom of Mysore. The Tellicherry fort is an imposing structure with its massive walls, strong flanking bastions, secret tunnels to the sea, and intricately carved huge doors. It was built in 1708 by the British East India Company to establish a stronghold on the Malabar Coast, and is a popular fixture in Malabar Tours.
A unique feature of the fort is its entrance situated at the top of a giant wall. It is said that a mixture of quicklime, egg white, and sugar candy were used in the construction of the fort
