not particularly exciting - it's only a lighthouse after all but the view over the bay is impressive and depending on the weather just watching the waves roll in and crash can be worth the visit

This is just another lighthouse and just nice to look at while you are walking around the Galle Fort. We were not able to enter it like you can enter the Dondra lighthouse.

Although this is not the most exciting thing to see, if you visit Galle you really should visit this area and the light house. If you know a local who can speak English it is very interesting to hear all about the British who came to Sri Lanka.

When you walk around the Fort eventually you'll pass by the lighthouse. You can't get inside, so take your photo and move on. Nothing to make a big fuss about.

An average lighthouse inside the Galle Fort Area. Nothing spectacular about the lighthouse. Not really worth a view though galle fort itself is nice to stroll around.
