Built by Portuguese

Haldummulla Fort (Sinhalese: හල්දුම්මුල්ල පැරණි බලකොටුව), also known as Katugodalla Fort, was built by the Portuguese in Haldummulla, Badulla. The 17th century fort was completely destroyed except the foundations, which can still be seen today in the forestry hill area. It served as a frontier post and staging post for Colombo. It provided a good view coverage of the surrounding areas.[1]
