Alampara Fort - On the way to Mahabs alias Mahabalipuram

Alampara Fort...

This fort was there in my wish list for quite sometime and i was able to tick it off by a visit to the same one Saturday - Thanks to my friend who took me there and that too on a sunny evening.

A brief history about that fort is as below :

The fort called as Alamparai and also as Alampara and was built during the Mogul in the late 17th Century and was also a dockyard for export.

This fort is situated at a approximate distance of 100 kms from Chennai, 50 kms from Mahabalipuram.

We reached there around 4 in the evening and was desolate.

We were the lone travelers /tourists at that time of the hour and the sun giving us a superb lighting effect.

Photos are as below :
