Starting off, the architecture of this place is just breath taking. It has the effect of a church in certain aspects. But overall, it's a lovely place to be in especially during early morning prayers.

Amazing! Just Amazing!

This is a landmark on the walk around the ramparts in Galle. Situated near the lighthouse it is best viewed near sunset when it is cooler. The building was originally a dutch church so the architecture is interesting. You can only view from the outside.

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.
