"King Street" or Kongensgade is Tranquebar’s main street, and some of the most important buildings of the Old Danish colony are still there. The main ones are the large Governor’s House, built in 1784 and now refurbished into an elegant hotel by the Neemrana Group, and the New Jerusalem Church, built in 1718 by Lutheran missionary Bartholomaus Ziegenbalg, who is buried there.
