Birdseye view of Jaffnapatnam.

The view depicts Jaffnapatnam the fort on the coast of Sri Lanka. This Portuguese built fort was captured by the Dutch and remained under the VOCs command as part of six different coastal territories, after they took over the Portuguese rule as consequence of an over three month siege in 1658. The kingdom of Jaffnapatnam consisted of 13 islands and four provinces, and the Dutch maintained rule for 138 years.
