Weekly Photo Challenge: ABANDONED


This picture shows the ruins of a Dutch fort in Negombo, Sri Lanka. It was built by the Dutch in 1640. The arched gateway now leads into a modern-day prison maintained by the Department of Prisons.
[The bicycle is not a prop! I believe it belonged to one of the prison guards]

    The bicycle adds the charm here 😉


  4. So they turned part of the fort into a prison?

      No, the prison building is not part of the fort, but it is located in the same site. What’s left of the fort are the arched wall and the bulwark that you can see in the picture.

    Where is it located again? Opposite the courthouse? next to the busy fish market? facing the Indian Ocean?


So, what d'ya think?
