Having been walking briskly along Galle Face Green & among the hubbub of the City, it was such a delight to come across the Kirk & step inside its ornate castellated architecture to sit quietly in the cool & recharge spiritually. Very welcome

It's just a fairly typical small church, which would be buried in a suburb in the UK and not rate a mention.
