Kalpitiya Fort

Kalpitiya Fort


Kalpitiya Fort is an ancient Dutch fort that was once proud but is now in ruins. This is considered to be one of the main attractions of the town of Kalpitiya which belongs to the Puttalam District in the North Western Province of Sri Lanka. This place is also known as Dutch Fort.

Built as a fort by the Dutch, it was used at that time as a center for storing and collecting treasures from our country and easily shipping them back to their homeland.

It is believed that this Dutch fort was built in the year 1666 with the permission of King Rajasinghe II.

According to the entrance to the fort, the Dutch left the fort in 1759. Maintained by the Dutch for 93 years and inhabited by the Dutch, this fort bears witness to an important past story. The walls of the fort are made of limestone, limestone and coral, and their rapid destruction when they were damaged may have contributed to the collapse of the fort's ancient glory.
