The whitish-grey area is where the rebuilding has taken place.

One of the classic 'Star Forts' built by the Dutch, this was the m,ain administrative centre of the Dutch and later the British. It was being systematically dismantled by the LTTE during its hey-day. The Dutch Government has funded a project to rebuild it. The white coloured areas on the walls of the Fort show the rebuilding.
