Kalpitya

The garrison at Fort Kalpitya had to ensure that no traders broke the VOC's cinnamon monopoly. The fort's position at the harbour entrance meant that the VOC could blockade Kalpitya harbour. This tactic was also used to put pressure on the king of Kandy when the Company came into conflict with him.
