History of Tipu Sultan Fort in Chettuva

Share & Comment
William Fort alias Tipu Sultan Fort is an remarkable historical monument located at Chettuva, a small village in Engandiyoor Panchayath, Thrissur District of Kerala. The Chettuva Fort foundation was constructed by the Dutch in 1714. Later this fort was captured by the ruler of Mysore, Tipu Sultan and was demolished partially and made some amendments to the fort. 

It is believed that an underground tunnel was created by the Mysore Tiger for his traveling to other forts. The Chettuva fort spread across 5 acres of land and now in a demolished state. Kerala Government has announced several projects to reinstate this fort to become a tourism destination in the map of Kerala Tourism. The walls of the fort are about 12 ft thick and due to neglect from  the authorities, the fort is now in a bad shape.
