Meera Mosque reviews
On the path around Galle. You will not miss it as it is nicely refreshed. Makes a nice fit to the colonial buildings in the nearby streets.

This is a very pleasant looking building opposite the lighthouse. It is well worth having a look at as you walk along the fortifications of the old fort.

Only built in 1904, Meeran Mosque exhibits a fabulous mix of architectural styles that again showcases the amazing diversity of cultures that have lived in and ruled over Galle throughout the years. While its Baroque facade looks more like that of a cathedral, some incredible Islamic detailing and decorations remind us that we are indeed looking at a mosque. Add in various British Victorian features, Dutch-influenced designs, and patterned Italian floor tiles, and you start to get a snapshot of not only the history and architecture of the mosque but that of Galle as well. The elegant whitewashed building certainly stands out against its surroundings. It is this unusual and unique combination that makes Meeran Mosque so worth visiting.
