Tarangambadi is a small coastal town located in Nagapattinam district, Tamil Nadu. I first visited it when I was very young. I remembered only few things which I saw back then. I remember exploring the fort and playing in the sea shore with my cousins. Recently I had to visit Karaikal, part of Pondicherry which is 132 Kms away from Pondicherry. The first thing that came to my mind was Tarangambadi (It is 15 kms from Karaikal). While returning from Karaikal I made time to visit Tarangambadi again. The Danish fort is small and is currently used as a museum. There was a huge whale skeleton kept in the museum when I saw first. There are some ruins in the sea, probably the old pier.
