Known for its unique keyhole-shaped construction, the Bekal Fort was built in 1650 AD by Shivappa Nayaka of Keladi. The fort has no palaces or mansions as it was never an administrative centre but is still one of the largest and well preserved forts in Kerala. Perched at an elevation of 130 ft above sea level, the fort draws tourists from all corners of the country for its architecture and the unmatched beauty of its surroundings. Tourists can also visit the observation tower near the fort that has peepholes from where you can get amazing views. Other attractions near the fort include the Anjaneya Temple, which is noted for its masonry and two laterite Theyyam sculptures. Tourists can also visit the pristine Bekal Beach nearby, which is an ideal spot to relax and rejuvenate amidst tranquil settings.
