A view of what is today known as ?The Bungalow on the Beach? Resort, run by the Neemrana Hotels. This was indeed a majestic building dating back to the 18th Century, built by the Danish East India Company in what was once a pepper trading post of Tranquebar. The Tamil village of Tharangambadi, which translate to ?The Singing Waves?, was once a Danish colony set up by Adminral Ove Gedde with a sea fort ?Dansborg? and several Lutheran Protestant Churches was once a flourishing sea port and centre of pepper trade. This bungalow, situated at the end of the King?s Street, past the Memorial of the Lutheran Protestant evangelist Bartholomaus Ziegenblog, who has to his credit 24 ?Firsts? including the first Protestant Missionary in India, the First Danish preacher in India, the first to translate The Bible in Tamil, The first to set up a printing press in India, the first to start a paper mill in India, and it goes on? was in a state of dilapidation till the innovative hotel chain purchased it in a state of disrepair and restored it with Tender Loving Care and converted it into a heritage hotel. This area was among the worst hit during the Tsunami
