This giant red and white banded chess tower stands 30 m (98 ft) tall above swaying palm trees. Climb its teakwood spiral staircase to the open-top balcony to get a 360 panoramic view of the Alleppey port and the city as well as the open sea.

  • Well worth a visit on your way to the beach or coming back from the beach . It is only a 6 km walk from town centre to beach passing by the Light House and crossing the rail tracks.  more »
  • Lately visit the place. But you will love the view it provides. You can have a great view of the beach. Not recommended for elderly and kids  more »
