St Angelo's Fort, Kannur, Kerala
St. Angelo's Fort was built in 1505 by Dom Francisco de Almeida, the first Portuguese Viceroy of India on the Arabian sea coast about 2 km from Kannur town. It was attacked in vain by the local Indian ruler Zamorin and kolathiri in thethe Siege of Cannanore (1507)
TheDutchcaptured the fort from the Portuguese in 1663. They modernised the fort and built the bastions Hollandia, Zeelandia and Friesland that are the major features of the present structure. The original Portuguese fort was pulled down later. A painting of this fort and the fishing ferry behind it can be seen in theRijksmuseum Amsterdam. The Dutch sold the fort to kingAli RajaofArakkalin 1772. In 1790 the British seized it and used it as their chief military station in Malabar until 1947.In August 1509 Almeida, refusing to recognizeAfonso de Albuquerque's as the new Portuguese governor to supersede himself, arrested him in this fortress after having fought the navalBattle of Diu. Afonso de Albuquerque was released after six months' confinement, and become governor on the arrival of the grand-marshal of Portugal with a large fleet, in October 1509.
The fort is in the Cannanore Cantonment area. It is fairly well preserved as a protected monument under the Archaeological Survey of India. St Angelo's fort is a most important historical monument and a popular tourist attraction. Six Tourism Policeman are posted here for protection duty.
In 2015, thousands of cannonballs weighing several kilos were discovered from the Fort premises. The Archaeological Survey of India, which led the excavation, believes these were buried as part of military preparedness.

This was the day when I visited the Sargaalaya: Kerala Art and craft village in Vadakara in Kozhikode district in kerala. There was a very little scope for my camera to take pictures as the whole compound was prohibiting photography. I could not take any of the photos of creativity in there, but I could take some of the landscapes and buildings.
What you see above is a small space in the middle of the compound where water is held and act as a source of water for the entire compound.So, these eagles find it more helpful to save themselves from the hot sun during the summer.
This is the Verandah in the compound.
This picture was an interesting one. I could really see the one-point perspective here.
How I could capture the crows. This is a kind of locally available brick which is carved out the laterite found in nature. It is important because the buildings made of this bricks can give cool effect inside the building, giving a relief from the hot summer.
This One was alone in between…
I love travelling. For travelling, I prefer Bus to any other mode of transport. It is because, I have the complete freedom to take ticket to any place I like. I can choose my own seat which has got its own importance in my journey. In Kerala, I have found happiness and comfort using KSRTC service which is run by the state. Depending on the time of arrival, cost and some other factors, I can choose different classes in these services.
