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.
