The observation post, which is situated on the eastern side of the historical Bekal Fort, is one of the most popular tourist spots in Kasargod district.  It caved in when the laterite stones of the wall collapsed.  The Bekal Fort was built using laterite slabs and is polygonal in shape.

It is said that Ikkeri Venkatappa Nayaka, who had ruled three centuries ago, had built the fort.  Now, the fort is in the safe custody and  administration of the Archaeological Survey of India.   Following the collapse of the wall, tourists and visitors are curtailed.
