Mannar Fort on Mannar Island, Sri Lanka



#sosrilanka #mannarsrilanka #travelsrilanka

Mannar fort is situated on Mannar island in Sri Lanka. It is close to the city and can be easily visited as it is not too far away. I would recommend visiting this place either in the morning or during the evening. Going to see this place during day time can be too harsh due to the hot climate. At evening, you will be more relaxing and definitely enjoy the most of what the fort can offer to you.

According to history, first, it was built by Portuguese in 1560. Then it was captured by Dutch in 1658, which they rebuilt the fort in 1696. Again in 1795, the British occupied the fort following the surrender by the Dutch. Today, it belongs to Sri Lanka Railways.
