Overview of Fort Vijf Sinnen
The name of the fort Vijf Sinnen is derived from the Dutch language, ‘Vyf Sinnen’, which means the five senses. Once a heavily armed fort but its fortifications proved to be fruitless in the 1781 Siege of Negapatam, in which the British took the fort. The siege was part of the Forth Anglo Dutch War and the Treaty of Paris of 1784 ended this. After the siege, Nagapattinam was not restored to Dutch rule, but remained under the control of the British East India Company. As a result, the Dutch headquarters shifted back to Pulicat. Currently, the Fort Vijf Sinnen has been demolished.
