Locally called Thrangambadi, the town of Tranquebar is mostly under the waters of the Bay of Bengal. Of what remains from the past, there is an 8th century temple and a 17th century Danish Fort. Apparently, this is one of the few places where the Danes were able to make a settlement into India. This town on India’s east coast offers bit of an off-beat trail for those of you who are planning a holiday to Pondicherry, Chidambaram and/or Thanjavur.
