The gravestones and architecture of this historical church are very interesting...a good glimpse of the Dutch presence and history.

Once you came to the Galle Fort you must bring a visit to the Dutch church and take a look inside. It's well preserved and restored.

This old Dutch church basically consists of one big airy room without much decor. The peaceful atmosphere and the feeling of centuries gone by makes a visit here worth it, though. The numerous gravestones in the floor are also fascinating. The local helper who talks to you all the time and asks for money to the restauration of the church is a major annoyance. Give us a moment of peace, man!

Looks great from the main road. If you walk around the side you will notice that the other sides have not had the same restoration or care. This is a shame, as it brings the whole experience down a notch. Still worth a visit though.

Quite interesting woodwork and architecture. Pity that churchkeeper is a bit annoying. She follows you around as if you will put something in your pocket. Her begging for money really annoyed me.
