Kamuthi Fort


This stone Fort was constructed 300 years ago by Sethupathi King Udaiyathevar alias Vijaya Ragunatha Sethupathy. It is believed that this was built with the assistance of a French Engineer. After the downfall of Panchalankurichi, this fort fell into the hands of the East India Company. It was also under the control of Maruthu Brothers for sometime. It is reported that Virapandya Kattabomman stayed at this Fort on his way to Ramanathapuram.
