Facts About The Palakkad Fort in Kerala

Posted By : admin/ 409

There are a quite number of forts in India that belong to the great Indian freedom fighter and Ruler of Mysuru Tipu Sultan. However, the fort at Palakkad in Kerala is one of the long-preserved forts in Southern India. Raised by Hyder Ali, father of Tipu Sultan, it is maintained by ASI (Archaeological Survey of India). The fort stands as a citadel of Tipu’s valour and courage and thus named ‘Tipu’s Fort’after he became a martyr in the final battle with the British. The fort also served as the military garrison of Hyder Ali. The fort was under siege by many invaders during the colonial times.

The fort is constructed in a square shape. The majestic fort encloses huge walls and bastions surrounding all sides. It also has a bridge leading to the entrance of the fort, which was once a makeshift drawbridge.

Attractions of Palakkad Fort:
The majestic structure of Palakkad Fort is one of the long-standing symbols that speaks volumes about the fierce battles that took place between Tipu’s forces and the East India Company. You can find a large ground found in the centre of the Palakkad fort that was once a stable for the cattle, sheep and other livestock during Tipu’s reign. Today you can find youngsters playing cricket, football and other sporting activities on the ground, in addition to its being used for public meeting and other social events.

You can find a temple dedicated to Lord Hanuman within the fort complex. An open-air auditorium is known as ‘Rappadi’, subjail and a matryr’s complex are other attractions within the fort complex. There is a kid’s park too on one side of the Palakkad fort; therefore, it is a perfect spot for a family outing and for those who’d love to explore the history of the place and the architecture of this 18th-century fort.

The Palakkad Fort is located near the Palakkad railway station. You can take an auto or taxi to reach the fort, once you reach Palakkad. There are several other tourist attractions in the town including Parambikulam Wildlife Sanctuary, Kalpathy Temple, Jain temple, Kanjirapuzha and Dhoni Falls, worth a visit.

Ooty, or Udhamagamandalam, as it is popularly called in Tamil Nadu, is one of the most popular hill stations in India. This charming hill station receives maximum visitors during the summer season. The cool and salubrious climate, well complemented by the lush and fertile greeneries, in Ooty, has attracted tens and thousands of tourists on their holiday vacation every year. The botanical garden, opened in 1847, has been a major tourist destination ever since. The Tamil Nadu Horticultural Department is entrusted with the responsibility of maintaining it all around the year.

The Queen of Hill Stations will get its second botanical garden soon on a sprawling 80acres land, as per an announcement made by the Tamil Nadu Government. The Tamil Nadu Tourism Development Corporation is buoyant that Ooty’s second botanical garden will see more tourist influx during the summer season.

The chief minister of Tamil Nadu, Mr E. Palaniswami, brought smiles to many when he made the announcement in accordance with Rule 110 in the Assembly House that a second botanical garden will be set up at Ooty. He followed it up with the allocation of the project cost of 10 crores for establishing the 200th year Evergreen Grassland at Ooty.

Tourists in TajMahal Can Enjoy Aerial View With The New Heliport in Pipeline

Posted By : admin/ 324

For tourists looking to enjoy an airborne view of Taj Mahal, India’s finest monument and one of the seven world wonders, the long wait is finally over. Thanks to the construction of a heliport by the tourism department of Agra on the AgraLucknow Expressway that would reduce the travel time considerably from the heliport to the 17th-century monument Taj Mahal, constructed by the great Mughal emperor Shah Jahan as a resting place for his favourite wife Mumtaz Mahal, as reported by ANI.

Mr Amit Kumar, deputy director of UP tourism, believes that the construction of a heliport will not only offer an aerial view of the monument but also that of the entire historical city of Agra. The helicopter, he added, would transport them to the site in just about 1015 minutes.

Mr Kumar said that the helicopter operation would commence soon as the required land grants to construct the heliport have been approved by the Government authorities. He further added that lands have also been earmarked and would be granted approval soon for the heliport scheme in Mathura, Lucknow, Varanasi and Allahabad, in addition to Agra.

This will be a sort of different experience for the average tourist, who would have viewed the Taj Mahal only from the ground level an ariel view would warrant fun and adventure for all. This may also help the physically challenged, elderly and children who can take a panoramic view of the Taj Mahal below. It can be a tough ask to take children and the elderly around the entire complex. The heliport scheme can make light work of viewing the monument, in addition to saving travel time. As what will be a fillip to the tourism of the city, the heliport service comes as a relief to tourists who have less time to spare.
