72 Feet Long Ancient Boat

A huge-sized boat that was discovered from under sand of the sea beach in 2012 has been placed in the tin shed structure.  The length of this old boat is 22 metres (72 feet), the width is 6.7 metres (22 feet), and its weight is about 90 tons. This especially preserved boat has been covered within wooden pieces, tin sheets and dark color. Besides, the large iron chain found inside the boat is lying beside the boat. As the boat, the Rakhain Market and the Buddhist Temple are within the same location, the attraction of the tourists for them increases day by day. Though not certain, the archeologists assume that the Portuguese or the Arab merchants used this boat for their trading.
