THE BUNGLOW ON THE BEACH - NAGAPATTINAM

Two restored buildings will stand as reminders of a Danish Admiral, Ove Gedde, sent by the king of Denmark with two ships. They were well received by the Nayak ruler of Tanjore, and given this territory.

Then Dansborg, the fort of Tarangambadi - Tranquebar for the Danes- was established to export pepper to Denmark.

Today you can drive in through a beautiful gate of the majestic King Street, past Lutheran churches and grand bungalows of the Danish Governors' and the British Collector's residence. Re-live marine history, visit the temples of Kumbakonam and Tanjore. Stopover for that 'while' which seems eternity.

Tranquebar, 15 km south of the ancient Chola port of Pumpuhar, and 15 km north of the former French comptoir of Karikal, was a Danish settlement from 1620 to 1845.
