After the Fort George in Madras, India, Fort Marlborough lined up as the biggest British fortress in Southeast Asia. The total area of this building is around 44,100 square meters and surrounded by 8.5 meters-height walls. This fort has a unique character as it looks like a turtle-shaped building as seen from above.
