North Kerala Attraction

Kasargod District in Kerala is the Northern Tip of Kerala. It is closer to Mangalore Airport in Karnataka State and from there accessible via road. If you are travelling by train, you can directly get down at Kasargod Railway Station.
2 main attractions of Kasargod are The Ananthpura Lake Temple and Baikal Fort & Beach.
Ananthpura Lake Temple is as its name suggests a beautiful temple in the middle of a lake. It is beautifully built and well maintained. Well accessible from the Main Road. Dress Code for men while entering the temple is to remove shirt which is usual across many Kerala temples. The main deity in the temple is Vishnu. The temple lake has a legend - a Crocodile named Babia who is considered guardian of this temple. Many legendary stories about this Crocodile. But we couldnt see him as the Legend comes out only as and when he wishes to. The crocodile is pure vegetarian, does not eat any of the small even tiny fishes present in the lake, comes out of its then once in a while to eat the Nivedyam (prasadam offered to Lord Vishnu) and thats it. We missed seeing the Guardian but his presence was definitely felt.
Baikal Fort and Beach are monumental destinations in Kasargod. Please do visit the Fort for its historical importance, its making, its capture and the entire history behind it. Fort is under the Archaeological Survey of India and so well maintained that you will be amazed. Preferred time is to go little before Sunset, cover the fort in the light and then enjoy the sunset from the fort as well as from the Baikal Fort Beach.
Stay options in Kasargod near to Baikal Fort is Baikal Palace (Economy Hotel), Taj Baikal and Lalit Bekal, both being luxury options.

A nice place to visit

I had been to Kasargod by road in February 2016. Kasaragod is easily accessible by all the three modes of transport i.e. Road, rail and air. The nearest airport to Kasaragod is the Mangalore Airport which is at a distance of around 70 kilometers. The must-visit attractions around Kasaragod include Bekal fort, Anandashram and Adoor. Bekal fort is around 3 centuries old and spans over an area of 40 acres. Adoor has an ancient Siva temple founded by Arjuna and is located 45 kilometers east of the Kasaragod region.

Kasargod Overview

Kasargod is a town as well as administrative headquarters of the Kasargod district, located in the northern most part of Kerala. It is known for its many coir and handloom industries. Other than the coir industries, fishing is also a main source of living in Kasargod. The district is under a green forest cover of the Western Ghats in the eastern region and is surrounded by the Arabian Sea in the western part.

The temples in Kasargod are built in a distinctive style that depicts the architectural style of Madhur. During the 9th and 14th century, Arab travellers visited the region, which led to the popularity of the town. One of the popular attractions here includes the Bekal Fort, which is of great interest to historians and archaeologists. The fort is said to be one of its kind that still stands in the southern part.

The unique rituals performed in the Theyyam festival is one of the major events of Kasargod, while the other festivals celebrated here include Onam, Vishu, Ramzan and Christmas. The rich heritage of the town is represented by the ancient attractions present here like Mahaganapathy temple and other structures like Malik Deenar and Great Juma Masjid.

Kasargod is often called the land of seven languages because of the different communities and languages prevalent in the destination such as Malayalam, Beary, Tulu, Kannada, Konkani, Marathi and Urdu.

There are other air transport options available from Thiruvananthapuram Airport and Kochi International Airport where direct flights are available from the Middle East, Singapore, Maldives and Sri Lanka.

Travelling to Kasargod is also possible through bus and train as the town has a train station of its own and connects all major cities.
