Fort Frederick is situated in Trincomalee. It is a fort that was built by the Portuguese in the Eastern Province back in the past. It is built on Swami Rock-Konamamalai from the debris of the world famous Koneshweram temple which is a temple of thousand pillars.
Fort Frederick is built on the debris of the Koneshwaram temple which was destroyed by the Portuguese colonial Constantino de Sa who was under Philip III. This was first built by the Portuguese and it was later rebuilt by the Dutch. This fortress is used by the Sri Lankan milary today but you can visit and explore most of it without any issue.
There are assorted cannons and artillery as well as there used to be some spotted deers around the area. A new village was also built in the Konomalai cape and it contained both Portuguese and Tamil people. There were 50 Portuguese soldiers inside the fort and a church was established in the name of “Nossa Senhora de Guadalupe”.
This whole structure was rebuilt by the Dutch and the name Fort Frederick was given.
