Memorial pilar on Swami Rock, Tricomalee, Sri Lanka Featured Print

Memorial pilar on Swami Rock, Tricomalee, Sri Lanka

Swami Rock, Tricomalee, Sri Lanka. Pillar erected in memory of Francina Van Rhede in 1687. She was the daughter of a gentleman of high office in the Dutch service and betrothed to a sea Captain who betrayed her. She watched his ship sail away for Europe. Before getting clear of the coast the ship tacked along and passed parallel to the precipices that formed the southern boundary of Fort Frederick. As it approached the rocks, the lady, who had watched from her apartment, ran along the cliff edge and as the ship turned for its journey to Europe, she balanced on a projecting crag and flung herself off. Her broken body was recovered from the rocks below. Her distraught father had a memorial carved on a solitary pillar of the type found in Hindu and Buddhist temples (pictured). It is square and hexagonal in alternate stages and bears the inscription: TOT GEDAGHTENIS VAN FRANCINA VAN RHEDE VROUW VAN MYDREGHT DESEN AO.24 april 1687 OP GEREGT Date: circa 1900
