Arakkal Palace And Kannur Fort In Kerala

Arakkal Palace, located 3 km from Kannur, holds the distinction of being the only royal residence of Muslims in Kerala.

The Kannur Fort, also known by the name of St Angelo's Fort was constructed in 1505 by a Portuguese called Don Francisco De Almeida. Later, the Dutch conquered the fort and sold it to the king Ali Raja of Arakkal kingdom.

The palace and the fort are close by and are under the care of ASI. It is also believed that the fort has a secret underground tunnel through the sea that leads to the Thalessery palace which is 21 km away.
