  • One of the more interesting parts of the Galle fortifications. Recently restored allowing to see a solid peace of architecture.

  • Amazing location. But the day time there is a hell of heat around. But at night its really calm and peaceful but the breeze makes something. I suggest you to go there at the night, like little Europe. Shinny street light, treet foods there are really nice. The moment makes more romantic when you visit with someone you love.
  • This is the great place to visit. Evening and morning hrs are recommended to visit here . Historical items can be seen. Gall fort 3D map was there and it is amazing. Safety fence not available and keep your eyes on your babies whenever you climb on the fort wall. Kindly, do not put garbage here
