Fort Zeelandia

One of the earliest forts constructed by the Dutch is Fort Zeelandia, which leaves parts of the wall and a semicircular base now.  It took ten years to build the front from 1624 to 1634.  The fort named as Fort Zeelandia after one provine of Holland.  Fort Zeelandia was built on an offshore social at Yi-Kun-Shen with bricks from java for construction.  The mortar of the building is a mixture of sugar, sand, ground seashells and glutinous.  The fort had great look with three stories high.  During the Dutch's occupation of Taiwan, Ford Zeelandia was the residence of the governor and the administration center.

Yi-kun-Shen was changed to the name of An-Ping when Koxinga (Cheng Chen-kung) expelled the Dutch in 1661 Koxinga made the fort his headquarters and named it Wnag-Chend.

The administrative center moved to Tainan in 1683 under the jurisdiction of the Ching government.  Ford Zeelandia became the Bureau of military Supply.  In 1869, the arsenal of the fort explode due to the attack by the British part of the walls was destroyed.  The remnants of Ford Zeelandia were taken as supply to build Erh-Kun-Shen Fort in 1874. A three-larger platform for the residence of the director of the Custom was built during the occupation of Japanese.  In 1930, for the purpose of exhibition, the residence was rebuild again. It is well known as the Old Fort of An-Ping with various historical artifacts and remnants today.
