A majestic remnant of Jaffna’s colonial epoch, the famous Dutch Fort in Jaffna, was built by the Portuguese in 1618. This pentagon shaped Fort overlooks the Jaffna lagoon. Interestingly, its five bastions were named, after Dutch provinces- Holland, Gelderland, Zeeland, Friesland and Utrecht. Although the interior of the Fort has not stood the test of time, the outer structure made out of limestone and black coral still remains in good condition.
