Sandwiched in the middle of the busy Pettah district sits the historical Wolvendaal church. It's not that easy to find unless your Tuk Tuk driver drives you (or you've got a really good map of the area). It is a quiet reflective oasis in this part of town. The oldest church in Colombo (3rd oldest in Sri Lanka) - is still a working church and because its a Dutch Protestant church its not an ornate tourist attraction however it is steeped in history. The church's verger/caretaker is knowledgable, patient and happy to show you around the church and the grounds and explain the building's quirky heritage. There are no fees as its a normal church however after having a guided tour and seeing that it is in need of repairs I was more than happy to make a donation to assist in its upkeep.
