A fort was built to ensure protection and preservation of the city of the Portuguese in the early 16th Century and then extensively fortified by the Dutch during the 17th century. Originally the fort was an earthen structure with palisades, a rampart, and three bastions, and a moat surrounding it. Under the control of the Dutch, they built impregnable fortifications with coral and granite stones and the Fort resembled a small laid out walled town with a rectangular grid pattern of streets full of low houses with gables and verandas. Turtle conservation center. The five species of marine turtles are nesting in Sri Lanka include the Green Turtle, the Leatherback, and the Hawksbill, the Loggerhead, and Olive Ridley. Established to protect turtles that nest in the Sri Lankan beaches from extinction, the marine turtle hatcheries are operated by the Wildlife Protection Society of Sri Lanka and rely on volunteers to help with their conservation project.
