A nice outpost looking over the sea. Nothing special about this place but you are able to walk round it and take a photo. At the end of the day it’s there to serve a purpose, but not used any more. Well kept, if you are walking along the fort then it’s nice to see it. Look good st sun set
It is just a lighthouse as you would find anywhere else in the world. It is said that original lighthouse was destroyed sometime back and this is a rebuilt version. You can take couple of pics around it but not allowed to go inside.
common place to take preshoot photos , wedding photo shoot. the history of the site is The current lighthouse structure was built in 1939; erected within the walls of the ancient Galle Fort with a height of 26.5m (87 feet). The lightstation stands at a strategic location at the southern end of the promontory; built approximately 6m above the road level on the ramparts of the Fort, at a place known as the Point Utrecht Bastion . This affords it an undisturbed view across the seascape; and allowing any incoming ships to see its light.
One of the Oldest Lighthouses in Sri Lanka & You can just walk in from the road no questions or tickets required.But to visit inside You need prior approval. Sunsets & Early mornings are a better choice.But In the evenings can be busy with visitors. A cool landscape photo location.Must see while visiting the Gall fort area!
Awesome cool place to relax your mind and body. You can have a cool beer underneath of this.
