Galle Fort is a UNESCO World Heritage site. This fortification which was first built by the Portuguese in 1588. Later in the 17th Century, Galle Fort underwent extensive modifications and expansions which were carried out by the Dutch. This Colonial fortification is one of the most significant historic monuments which was constructed and later expanded with European architectural influence in South East Asia. Galle Dutch Fort was constructed to protect the port city Galle, which is one of the main cities of South West Coast of Sri Lanka. Galle was mentioned in Ptolemy’s World Map in the 2nd Century AD as this was one of the main maritime trading hubs connecting traders and shipping routes from Europe, the Middle East and the Far East. Galle was port where ‘Lourenço de Almeida’ the Portugues explorer – military commander first landed in 1505. This landing was the beginning of the ‘Portuguese era’ of Ceylon (Sri Lanka) which lasted until 1658. During this period, the island country experienced many armed conflicts between Sinhalese kings who ruled rest of the country and Portuguese who occupied the coastlines and main coastal cities including Colombo, Galle etc. In 1640, Dutch joined hand with Sinhalese Rulers of Sri Lanka against Portuguese to control the coastal trades and capture military garrisons established by the Portuguese. Galle Fort was fallen to Dutch in 1640. Later the Fort was rebuilt, extended and fortified by Dutch with many new additions including churches, garrisons, administrative buildings, gun houses and warehouses. British took over the fort on 23 February 1796, one week after Colombo was captured. In 1815, Kandy - last Kingdom of Sri Lanka was surrendered to British rule and the entire country became a British Crown Colony. Sri Lanka remained a British Colony from 1815 until regaining independence in 1948 Historical monuments in Galle Fort include: 🔵The Dutch Government House and The Residence of the Commander 🔵 Fort Clock Tower 🔵Dutch Reformed Church 🔵Historical Mansion Museum 🔵 Fort Flag Rock Bastion, Sun Bastion, Moon Bastion Zwart Bastion 🔵National Maritime Archaeology Museum 🔵Old Dutch Hospital 🔵Dutch mansion and former warehouse (Now Galle Fort Hotel) 🔵All Saints' Church 🔵National Museum of Galle 🔵 Fort Ambalama . ** Please talk to our Villa Manager to arrange your transport for the tour to see the Galle Dutch Fort
