BEKAL FORT

Bekal is the largest and most well-preserved fort in Kerala. It is situated in Bekal in Kasargod district. The fort is spread over 40 acres. The important features of this fort are the water-tank with its flight of steps, the tunnel opening towards the south, the magazine for keeping ammunition and the broad and wide steps leading to the Observation Tower which is a rarity. This observation center had strategic significance in discovering even the smallest movements of the enemy and ascertaining the safety of the Fort.
This fort is more than 300 years old and is believed to have been built in the 1650s by Sivappa Naik of the Ikkeri dynasty. There is also another belief that it was originally built by Kolathiri Rajas and later captured by Sivappa Naik. The fort was occupied by Hyder Ali of Mysore in 1763 A.D and then the Huzur of Canara during Tipu Sultan’s reign and later by the British.

(Distance: Bekal fort is 50 km away from Wood Greens Ayurveda and Wellness Resort)

It was an amazing stay on top of the hill in the middle of greenery and fresh air to breathe. And what more can you ask when you get fresh homemade food to eat. It's a kid friendly location so kids got to enjoy most with the nature around and explore their own world of adventures.

Good place to stay out of the hustle bustle noise...we had relaxing time here with family. . Room are very large and spacious, cool breeze in this hot summer. Host tries to make it more comfortable for all .. we arrived late in the night around 11:30 by bus and host was constantly in touch with us, restaurants nearby were closed due to local festival but host got us breakfast. I would recommend this place for a breakaway and relaxation..
