On my last year's tour to Galle with my friends, we were stretching our legs after a long walk around the monuments when we saw this. It was almost as something pulled us into this mystifying place. It kind of gave me chills to be among these so old infrastructure as it displayed a pure majestic view embedded with a... More

My main purpose of visiting Church Street this morning was to see The Dutch Reformed Church and I saw this lovely piece of Architecture. A quick visit - no service in progress with just a few people in prayer so easy to walk around. I am advised that All Saints is the Main Anglican Church in Galle.

Nice church to stop by. It looks like building is completely renovated from outside. During sunny days it is so nice on pictures.

Visited the All Saints Anglican Church during a walk around Galle Fort during December. Walking along Church Street it was one of our first stops on the tour. Lovely exterior which opens up to a wonderful interior this church definitely exudes a sense of peace and serenity.

As Anglicans, we were pleased to find this lovely old church while on a Tuk Tuk Tour of the Galle Fort. Our driver was happy to stop and wait while we went in. The church dates from 1871 I think and has just been restored. All dark wood and stained glass, it is a lovely quiet place and should be... More

Impressive looking from the outside and I believe recently renovated, just some scaffolding at the top. Inside still under renovation but had a quick look in and will be good when it is finished. Most of the walls are repainted with scaffolding around the altar area

Sadly when we visited Galle on 6th of October, the roof and outside of this impressive old Church was covered in scaffolding. We also went inside, just inside the front door, everything was covered in plastic to protect it while the decorating was going on. We were able to look upwards to see the massive wooden ceiling. We did get... More

Grand old building with old dark wood and whitewashed pillars. Good to see its being restored. Worth a look in

This church is being worked on and large parts of both sides are covered and essentially a construction zone. Very nice stained glass.
