In the coastal town of Trincomalee is the beautiful Fort Frederick which was built in the 17th century by the Portuguese and was later fully completed by the year 1624. The Fort has an exciting appeal to it as it was built on the Swami Rock-Konamamala which was formed by the debris and remains of the famous Hindu Koneswaram temple, which was also known as a temple of a thousand pillars.
The Sri Lankan army is currently operating the Fort, but it also acts as an alluring tourist destination which attracts people due to its historical appeal. One can explore the Fort on foot or hire a tuk-tuk. Inside the Fort, you will also come across the Gokana Temple and the Wellesley Lodge among other historical imprints. Thus, the Fort takes you on a fantastic heritage experience to remember.
