About Dutch Reformed Church, Galle
The Dutch Reformed Church is an ancient construction which was erected in 1755. Elegant calamander was imported wood from Malaysia to make the pulpit of the church while the floor is paved with gravestones from the Old Dutch cemetery. The guy who looks after the church will politely explain historic facts about the tombstones. There is an antique organ in the church that also belongs to the 17th century. The exteriors and interiors of the church are gorgeous. Try not missing a visit to the church when in Galle.
