Bekal Fort¬†(Malayalam:¬†ŗī¨ŗĶáŗīēŗĶćŗīēŗĶĹ ŗīēŗĶčŗīüŗĶćŗīü), is the largest fort in¬†Kerala, situated at Bekal village in¬†Kasaragod district,¬†Kerala¬† An important feature of this fort is the water-tank with its flight of steps. The fort has a tunnel opening towards the south and a magazine for keeping ammunition with broad steps leading to the Observation Tower. From there one has an ample view of towns in the vicinity like¬†Kanhangad,¬†Pallikkara, Bekal,¬†Kottikkulam, and Uduma. The nearest railway stations are Bekal Fort, Kotikulam, Kanhangad, and Kasargod. This observation center had strategic significance in discovering even the smallest movements of the enemy and ensuring the safety of the Fort. The Fort appears to have been built up from the sea since almost three fourths of its exterior is drenched and the waves continually stroke the citadel. The Mukhyaprana Temple of¬†Hanuman¬†and the ancient Muslim mosque nearby bear testimony to the age-old religious harmony that prevailed in the area.
