Tranquebar Re-live the History
Updated: Sep 28, 2019
Tranquebar is a Danish term derived from the native Tamil word Tarangambadi, meaning 'place of the singing waves’ - a fancy name for this quaint little town in the Nagapattinam district. At just a few hours away from Chennai, this is the perfect option for a weekend getaway. We stayed at …., a stunning 18th-century Danish colonial house regarded as one of the best heritage hotels in Tamil Nadu. The property is the best kind of paradox - flanked by the 17th-century Danish fort on the right and a 14th century Pandya temple on the left.
Ideal for honeymooners and leisure vacationers, this hotel has 8 spacious well-equipped rooms with breathtaking views. The kitchen serves lip-smacking dishes of Indian and World cuisines. Guests can enjoy sightseeing, boat trips, beach walks, and bird watching.
