Very nice English church in heart of Sri Lanka. A memorial building from colonial age. There is no sign or guide to explain the history of church. It is perfect for 30 minutes visit

Had hoped to visit inside the church but was unfortunately locked. The graveyard,however, is fascinating to wander around. Very atmospheric.

This is a very old Anglican church with a cemetery of those who died during WW2. The church has a beautiful garden and is recommended if you want to relax or simply mediate

If you wish to get away from the traffic and bustle of the main street in N Eliya..... walk to the back of the main Park in town and up a narrow street away from town. Along the way you will spot a few old English type cottages representative of the early 1900's. Anyone on the street will guide you... More

Still a working church with a very interesting graveyard out front and to the side.
