The Dutch Reformed Church or Groote Kerk is one of the oldest Protestant churches to serve this island. It was built by the Dutch in 1755 on the highest point within the fort, with its base standing more than 12 metres above sea level.

Did a walking tour of the Galle Fort Area and visited the church during the tour. A historical church building with a lot of history and cool to see all the inscriptions on the floor of the church in Dutch. It is free to enter. We did a quick tour of the place but definitely worth visiting if you are in the area.

This is the nicest church I saw in my month long trip to india/sri lanka. The stain glass is just beautiful, nothing ornate like a catholic church, its very simple, I just worshipped and spoke with the caretaker. Like other reviews please give a donation. Once again really nice church.

The DRC in the Galle Fort is an oasis of calm in the midst of The Forts hustle and bustle. It's a museum, a place of records, a historical building and an active place of Worship, all in one. Don't forget to make a donation for its upkeep - places like this need high maintenance and every bit helps.

This is situated in the galle dutch fort and it was built by the Dutch in 1755 and is one of the oldest Protestant churches still in use in the country. There are many tombstones stones date goes back the 18th century during the Dutch period. And also there were some 2 basement cellars, which were closed/ barricaded.

Well maintained little church.

Lots if history.

Don't rush a visit drink it in.

Catacombs and secret passages, now blocked.

A very nice building. Not large, not ornate, although with some stained glass windows, an organ in the upper level and just a very peaceful ambience about the place.

See the tombs inside the church and the interesting churchyard with its cemetery. It takes you back the early days of Dutch colonial times.
