Anchuthengu And Anjengo Fort – Explore The Ruins
Old and full of history, Anjengo Fort was built in the late 17th century by the East India Company. It was gifted to the company by the Queen of Attingal. According to local legend, the British had a hard time pronouncing the town of Anchuthengu where the fort was built and called it Anjengo instead. This place is also surrounded by some of the best islands in Kerala.
Today, Anchuthengu and Anjengo Fort are some of the most popular Varkala places to visit. The town features old structures including a century-old convent and tombs of soldiers. Walking through the streets, it’s easy to feel like you’ve stepped into the past. The old world feel is very discernible!
