Anchuthengu Fort

Anchuthengu fort

The British East India Company established Anchuthengu Fort or Anjengo Fort in 1695 after the Queen of Attingal gave it permission to do so. The fort served as the first signalling station for ships arriving from England.[1]

The fort was the East India Company's first permanent post on the Malabar Coast.[2] It played an important role in the Anglo-Mysore War.[3]
