Indra Patra

Standard

Indra Patra Fortress built by the Royal Lamuri, the first Hindu kingdom in Aceh (Indra Patra) in the period before the arrival of Islam in Aceh, namely in the seventh century AD.

This fort was built in a strategic position of dealing directly with the Strait of Malacca, which serves as a bulwark against the Portuguese fleet.
     
At the time of Sultan Iskandar Muda, with a strong fleet under the command of Admiral Malahayati, as the first female admiral in the world, the fort was used as a defense of the kingdom of Aceh Darussalam. Unfortunately, the people of Aceh alone few know the history of this fortress.
