A very old good kept church, as if it is straight from the history books of the old colonial times. It has a high historic value. No beggars or people asking for money, just a small sign that it is possible to donate a gift. A must see stop when going on a Galle Fort tour!

An ol church that you can visit as you walk in the old town. The day I was here there was a wedding rehearsal in progress, so was nice to see parts of this too here.

Though the church was going through renovation when we visited, it was still nice to wander inside and read the obituaries especially on the tiles and walls of the church of the people who loved or died there. The seating was still the original and the whole place had a peaceful vibe.

How special to enter this church and find all the Dutch names on the gravestones which are on the floor and walls.
What a history is laying here, very impressive and it really gives you the VOC feeling. Please do visit!
