Tranquebar Travel Guide

Once a trading post of the Danes, the tranquil little town of Tranquebar or Tarangambadi aka Land of the Dancing Waves is slowly being transformed into a bustling beach haven, interspersed with vignettes of history. Unlike neighboring Pondicherry where the French left an unmistakable stamp, Tranquebar’s deserted colonial structures built by the Danes in the 1620s are the only remnants of the presence of the Danes.

Most visitors come to this coastal town for the peace and quiet offered – away from the madding crowd of big city life. So travel to tranquebar before it gets run over by people.

The place of the singing waves – Tranquebar also known as Tharangambadi, owes its name and identity to the Danes who made it one of their major trading posts in the early 17th century.
