This is an ancient town (now Kadapakkatrum village) with a history dating back to centuries. This tiny place on the east coast was used as a port to export zari, pepper, salt and ghee in ancient times. Also we gather that this famous ECR was once a beaten road for pilgrims to Rameshwaram. Must have been a buzzing place in those days. Even ancient poems refers this place as Idaikazhainadu

The ruined fort in was built by musilm rulers during 1746 AD by Nawab of Carnatic Dost. Alikhan. However, by 1760, this fort was destroyed by the Britishers. This fort was also destroyed by 2004 tsunami. Now it looks like a small fishing hamlet with scenic backwaters.
