  • Old castle built by Dutch people in early 1590 or recent era. When i visit there, no action has been taken to protect the place. Archaeological Department of Sri Lanka should consider those places
  • A small fort which once guarded the entry to Mannar Island. Nothing spectacular about the fort but affords spectacular views of the Mannar Lagoon
  • It's an amazing place. Sadly nothing much is being done to preserve the old buildings which are the best when compared to matara, jaffna, batticalo forts.
  • An archeological place with a historical value. Consider as hidden ruin of Sri Lanka. Major attraction in Mannar. Need touch of reconstruction before it get lost forever.
  • This is an ancient ruin. Dutch fort in mannar. One of the hidden historical monuments in Sri Lanka.
