Tarut Island fort

Tarut Island fort

Eastern Province

This is a 16th century Portuguese-built fort which is itself built on top of a 3rd millenia BC Dilman civilization fort. Tarut island was a trading city and port for more than 7000 years but its harbor is now silted up and it is a forgotten backwater.
