There is good reason behind naming this the All Saints Church. Inside, there is a carillon of 25 bells, casted for the church from West Germany. Each of the bells has the name of on saint written on it. The building itself, from 1935, is a splendid example of Gothic architecture in Sri Lanka. It is also noted for a number of lovely stained glass windows. It's a local favourite place to get married.

The spacious inside of the church is one of the most peaceful and shady sections available. With inner archways leading to the prayer area, the church is filled with things to see; including 145 year-old antique wooden pews, a decorated wooden pulpit, lampshades hanging from old fans, beautiful wood carvings, a bronze Bible stand shaped like an eagle, and stained glass windows depicting scenes from the Bible. The old memorial tablets embedded into the walls are worth a second look at, because some of them are over a century old. The centerpiece is the large life-sized statue of Crucified Jesus is beautifully wrought and very detailed. The pew racks are not kept empty, and usually contain a neat stack of hymn copies for the use of visitors and regulars. It makes one feel welcome regardless of whether you’re a Catholic or not.

One of the most miraculous Catholic church in Srilanka. 🇱🇰 A good church with nice Environment. Beautiful interior designs. Very close to Borella & Maradana. Great place to worship. Highly recommend.
A church with a mix of local and Gothic architectural design. A superb place to have a peaceful conversation with Jesus..
