An old Mosque located right beside the lighthouse by the fort. Most often referred as The White Mosque. Travelers can get a chance to look inside the mosque if dressed appropriately (full covered) as it is a place of worship.

We didn't get to go inside but beautiful to look at from the outside. Amazed by how cultures melt together and compliment each other. This is a beautiful town.

Meera Mosque was built in 1909 and is the main Mosque in Galle. It is located within the walls of Galle Fort and close to the Lighthouse. The mosque is an impressive structure with its white walls and I paid a quick visit on my way to The Lighthouse.
