In the Portugese period a Mosque was not allowed in Galle. The Meera Mosque was built by the Muslims during the Dutch period and completed in 1904. Women are not permitted in, but the best view of the Mosque is from the ramparts near the lighthouse. Just after sun rise the sun hits the mosque and its silver/ golden in colour.
