Panama

This VOC outpost was situated on the eastern coast in the south of Ceylon. From this location the Company was able to guard the area, which boasted many salt pans. This meant the VOC was in a position to keep a close check on the salt trade. When relations with the King of Kandy deteriorated, the Company was forced to consider returning several conquered regions, including the area around Panama, to the King, Raja Sinha.
