Palghat Fort (Tipu's Fort)

 
 
ln the heart of Palghat town, there is a well-preserved Fort which dates back to 1766 A.D. It was built by Haider Ali of Mysore, supposedly to facilitate communication between Coimbatore and the West Coast. In 1784 after a siege lasting eleven days, the British Colonel, Fullerton stormed the Fort. It later fell into the hands of the Zamorin's troops but was recaptured by the British in 1790.

Pallippuram Fort was built by the Portuguese in 1503. It is one of the oldest existing European monuments in India. The Catholic Church at Pallippuram is an important pilgrim centre.
