Description

This is where Francis Light, having conned the Sultan of Kedah into handling him this island, first landed.

Knowing that the Sultan will send an army to regain the island, he ordered that a small wooden fort be made. Gradually it is improved and turned into a formidable fort with walls made of stones.

When you are there, you’ll see the remains of the fort, 17 cannons, a small prison and weapon cache area.

There’s also the Seri Rambai cannon that was given to the Sultan of Kedah by the Dutch before it changed hands from one empire to another due to wars.
