After lying derelict for over 350 years, the Alamparai Fort, which was once a thriving port and mint of the Muslim and French rulers, is set to regain its majesty, as the Department of Archaeology has begun restoration work.

The funding for the conservation and restoration project has come from the Asian Development Bank, which has allotted ₹8.02 crore for the initiative.

The work is on in full swing and is expected to be completed in seven months.

“The restoration will not only resurrect the ancient fort, but also attract tourists,” a senior official of the Archaeology Department said.
