1641년에 네델란드가 포르투갈로 부터 말라카를 빼았는데, 말라카를 방어하기 위해서 1660년에 말라카 강 입구에 요새를 만들고 대포를 설치했답니다. 네델란드 광장에서 해양박물관으로 가는 길의 말라카 강변에 있습니다. more »In 1641, the Netherlands withdrew Malacca from Portugal, and in 1660 a fortress was built and cannons were installed at the entrance to the Malacca River to defend Malacca. Located on the banks of the Malacca River on the way from The Netherlands Square to the Maritime Museum.
This is all that is left of the Dutch fort built during their occupation. There are some Portuguese parts that are also visible. The cannons there are from the Dutch East India Company era. more »
A bastion is a protruding structure from a curtain wall of a fort. Middleburg Bastion was an improvement to the A Famosa fort by the Dutch after they captured it from the Portuguese. A series of bastions provide supporting line of fire to each other hence greatly increasing defensive value of the fort.
Good historical structure. I was hoping that they put up some lights in this area so people could appreciate the place even at night time.
