Walking around Galle Fort don’t go past this church without a quick look. It warrants a photo or two from the outside and a brief look around inside. The floor is amazing consisting of headstones from the graveyard.

A small, quaint church with simple plain artistry, I was fortunate to visit here just before closing time. It was very quiet and peaceful and definitely gives you a sense of the colonial history in the area.

There is not much. This is a reasonably big structure. A few stained glass (not so great). It is like many of the churches seen elsewhere.

The Dutch church was a center for their colony, and the building is remarkably well preserved. Well worth visiting. I also enjoyed the All Saints Church, just nearby, and the Meera Mosque. Old Galle was quite a good mix of people and cultures!

An interesting historic property well cared for, well presented and open for all to enjoy. It is good to see how the Dutch worshiped when in charge of Galle.

This has been built by the Dutch when they were ruling down south. It is very old and must visit place if you want to study Sri Lankan history

We enjoyed stepping into this church while in the old town fortress area. It was cool & calm & the architecture is typical traditional Dutch. There's a real sense of history here & the place is very well maintained
