Historical place
sep. 2021
Fort Dansborg called Danish Fort, is a Danish fort located in the shores of Bay of Bengal in Tranquebar (Tharangambadi) in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Fort Dansborg was built in the land ceded by Thanjavur king Ragunatha Nayak in an agreement with Danish Admiral Ove Gjedde in 1620 and acted as the base for Danish settlement in the region during the early 17th century. The fort is the second largest Danish fort after Kronborg. The fort was sold to the British in 1845 and along with Tranquebar, the fort lost its significance as the town was not an active trading post for the British. After India's independence in 1947, the fort was used as an inspection bungalow by the state government till 1978 when the Department of Archaeology, Government of Tamil Nadu took over the control of the fort. The fort is now used as a museum where the major artifacts of the fort and the Danish empire are displayed. Please ensure you reach before 5.30 PM as it closes by then

Throwback
sep. 2019
We first spotted the Fort from our hotel balcony. Compared to other Indian forts, it's not too large but has a graceful look to it. Ragunatha Nayak, the king of Tanjore, permitted the Danes to erect a fortress at Tranquebar at an annual rent of Rs. 3111.

It's the second largest fort built by the Danes. The fort is constructed in the Danish architectural style. Glorious halls, high ceilings & columned structures. The fort also has a museum. We saw artifacts from the Danish empire.

The 2nd largest Danish castle in the world in 1671
feb. 2020
According to a 1671 map of Tranquebar, the fortress was the "second largest Danish castle in the world after Kronberg (also known as Elsinore), the setting of Shakespear's "Hamlet". It is a surprisingly large fortress given Denmark was notably smaller than the other East Asiatic companies (the Dutch and English) in the area during this period. Well worth spending 15 minutes or so exploring the castle and its walls. Located directly on the ocean, it would have watched for pirates (a plague at the time) as well as its ships. Tranquebar had a rocky coastline without a port so ships had to moor off the coast with their goods brought in by tender. Marine archaeologists have located some shipwrecks offshore but none have been explored to date. The fort also houses a small museum.

Interesting artefacts

This fort houses some interesting things relative to the Danish presence here.
It adds an interesting dimension to the entire ‘colonial’ picture.
Make sure to visit at 10pm (when it opens) as it gets steaming hot!

Good spot for revisiting our past
des. 2019
The Dutch fort at Tharangambadi (Tranquebar) is a nice spot for a brief outing. The surroundings are a throw-back to times past and the fort - rather the museum inside - holds many things of interest. The view of Bay of Bengal from the fort is awesome. The museum definitely can be spruced up. When we visited, we saw that there were some whale bones just strewn on the floor with no protection whatsoever. Entrance fee is quite affordable and there is a lot of parking space available.

The one and only Danish Fort in India
jan. 2020
Tarangambadi or Tranquebar was the only Danish colony in India from 1620 to 1845. It was then sold to British East India Company. This 17 th century fort popularly known as Dansborg stands as a testimony to the engineering skills of Danes. It withstood the Tsunami and still in good condition. There is a small museum inside.
The fort is closed on Fridays. Entry fee is only five ruppees and camera fees is thirty rupees.
