This was quite an interesting church. There were graves with the headstones that made up the floor, and a little cemetery out the back. There were also some tunnels, but not much info Worth the visit

Historic church with fascinating tombs. The colonials certainly left their mark. Drop by if you can.

The Dutch Reform Church is a small building, quite busy with tourists. A short entrance from the street and facing is a long coloured glass window with a simple interior. For the historians an interesting place to visit

The Dutch reformed church, with its flagstone floor of graves (just like in Banda Neira, Indonesia) stained glass windows, pulpit, and organ is a must see place in Galle Fort. Don't miss the graves outside in the church yard, and the underground passage to the...More

Though it is a church it was like haunted (Because of grave stones). That is why i like this place. Thank god there was children who were decorating the church for Christmas. That made the place alive and less haunted.
