“Chapel built by the Christian Missionaries”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

It is a chapel within an iconic and famous school called S.Thomas College. One can liken it to Eton or Harrow. The school has produced six prime ministers of Sri Lanka! As most Private and Public Schools go, this one tops the list.

“Peaceful and traditional”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

I dont think one can visit the chapel without prior approval of the Principal, as it is inside the premises of St Thomas' College. However, anyone can walk in on a Sunday for the service and walk around the garden as well. Although I am a Buddhist I liked sitting through the service as it seemed traditional and the choir was excellent.
