Alamparai fort is a 17th Century Fort located in between Mahabalipuram and Pondichery, off East Coast Road (ECR). The good thing is, this fort is just 10-12 kms from Marg SwarnaBhoomi.

Alamparai fort and backwaters are really scenic and is an ideal place to spend an evening with your loved ones. Alamparai is fairly isoladed and not over crowded like other tourist destinations around ECR. Below photos show you the beauty of this fort. Make it a point to visit Alamparai during your next visit.

The fort was built in the 17th century by the Mughals. Since then, it has withstood the test of time and carries momories of over 4 centuries.

Local fisherman offer rides on their boats, of course for a fee (About 300 Rs for a ride, negotiable). With no life jackets there is a risk element to it, however backwater is not so deep for any real threat. A swim in the backwater will also be very refreshing and relaxing.

Though Alamparai is little far from Chennai city for a quick visit, it is very close to Pondy and Marg Swarnabhoomi project.
