Kasaragod tour is all about beaches, backwaters, hill stations, shrines and cultural discoveries. Here are the top destinations of the northern corridor of Kerala. "BEKAL - FORT, BEACH AND WATER PARK" Bekal is the prime tourist spot of Kasaragod, thanks to the fort, beach and stunning views. The pride of the place is the fort, which is built over a headland that runs into the sea. Archaeologically speaking, it is a 400 year old key-hole shaped structure, built with defensive strategy in mind. It is the largest fort in Kerala, well preserved and nowadays managed by Archeological Survey. Bekal is 2.5 kms from Bekalfort Homestay .From Kasargod 16km and Kanhangad, the other regional town, is 11 kms from the fort. "MADHUR TEMPLE" Madhur temple is one of the most important places of worship in Kasaragod district. Regarded high for spiritual powers, the temple has two deities. The principal deity is Srimad Anantheswara (Lord Siva). So it is called Srimad Anantheswara Vinayaka temple. However, the more potent deity here is Ganapathy (Ganesh). Poojas (worship rituals) are performed thrice daily - at 8:00 A.M, 12:30 P.M and 8:00 P.M. Located by the side of a small river, Madhuvahini, the temple is attractive for its distinct architectural style. Malik deenar Mosque, Kasaragod The Malik Ibn Dinar Mosque is situated at Thalankara, about one and a half km from Kasaragod town. This is one of the earliest mosques built in Malabar. It is believed to have been built by Malik Ibn Dinar, who is credited with the propagation of Islam in Kerala. The mosque, which resembles a palace built in the typical Kerala style of architecture, has two storeys and massive wooden beams. What one see’s today is not the original structure that Dinar constructed, Originally, it was a small structure with thatched roof. "RANIPURAM HILL STATION" If kottancherri disappoints you for the lack over overnight stay, the spot light should be on Ranipuram, where a few tourist cottages are available. Ranipuram has landscapes similar to Kottancherry. The jungle that continues to Karnataka is rich in wildlife. Elephant, leopard, boar, types of deer, civet cat, rare squirrels, different species of monkeys and a rich population of other animals, birds and butterflies are found here. "POSADIGUMPE" Posadigumpe is a hill top location that offers uninterrupted views of Arabian Sea, and regional towns such as Mangalore and Kudremukh. The views and the walks, that is all there is. A few hours, all to your self - Posadigumpe is just for that. Make sure to take some food / snacks since there are no shops around. At the base of the hill is Dharmathadka, which is about 25 KM north-east of Kasargod. "CHANDRAGIRI FORT" Just 3 kms south of Kasaragod, the fort is easy to reach. The fort was built in the 17th century. Similar to Bekal fort, it is also a defensive bastion built by laterite bricks. The fort is built on a hillock near Chandragiri River bank. The river curves in front of the fort, only to meet the sea soon after. Yes, the sight is pretty from the top. Chandragiri boat ride is another to do list item. The boat club offers rides to tourists. Chandragiri Bridge is the starting point of the rides. "ANANTHAPURA LAKE TEMPLE" Set in the middle of a 2 acre pool, it is one and only lake temple in Kerala.

It is one of the two two Anantha Padmanabha Temples in Kerala. The other one is the famed Anantha Padmanabha Swamy Temple in Trivandrum. It is believed that Ananthaa Padmanabha Swamy (Lord Vishnu) settled at Ananthapura Lake Temple originally. Hence the temple is called a moolasthanam (original seat) of the Lord. "ANANDASRAM" Looking for a spiritual twist to your Kasaragod tour? Anandasram, located 5 km from Kanhangad, is one of the choices. The spiritual retreat was founded by Swamy Ramdas in 1939. "NITYANANDASRAMAM" Swami Nityananda founded the Ashram and lived here during his younger days. Using local workforce, he ingeniously carved out 43 caves from a laterite hill. These caves were meant for mediation. Swami also built a temple atop the hill. Its design resembled the famous Somanatha Temple of Gujarat. The Ashram is just in the outskirts of Kanhangad town.
