Dutch Reformed Church, Galle
(3.9/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Located within a historic fort on a hill overlooking Colombo, Dutch Reformed Church serves as a reminder of the Dutch rule in Ceylon and appeals to anyone interested in Sri Lankan colonial history. Built in 1749, the church features a simple interior with wooden chairs and benches. If you prefer to stay outdoors during your visit, walk through the church cemetery, where you can see many tombstones with well-preserved epitaphs.

  • Get away from the tourists and the wall. The serene rest in the small church is delicious after the busy streets and the forts. View the graves in the Church of died young Dutch children, women and important men. Chat with koster, as-ie in the neighborhood.

  • 荷兰教堂,庄严而神圣的地方。从他的特点来看,明显带有巴洛克式建筑风格。外部装饰线条夸张,屋顶椭圆形。内部的花窗,色泽艳丽,富有感染力。 
  • well preserved Church. Nice to see that here again the Dutch East India Company of Netherlands also pops up on the floor which consists of gravestones and monuments-the outdoor much Dutch names. definitely worth a visit
