Skywatch Friday – An evening in Parangipettai

Parangipettai is just another fishing hamlet on the Coromandel Coast. But centuries ago, it had another name and an identity – Porto Novo. It was then a colony of the Portuguese who had set up a trading post initially but later ruled parts of India. This Skywatch we visit the shores of this erstwhile port. The entire jetty that we see here was once a thriving port , but today we see no evidence of the same
