Pas Betaal was a crossing point or ferry near to Colombo, opposite present-day Wattala. Both Matuaal and Retaal are variously referred to as a pass or ferry in the VOC land muster-rolls. It is not known where exactly the pass was situated. On the map of Colombo of the Bodel Nijenhuis collection, inv.nr. 33. COLLBN 002-11-065, both passes are mentioned (see P and Q).
