Sri Lanka, the paradise island offers over 1,300km of tranquil sandy beaches and whichever time of year it may be, there’s always a beach with sunshine and rippling indigo-blue Ocean. The pale-golden palm fringed beaches with a view of the bustling blue waters beyond the horizon provides an astonishing interpretation of paradise which will leave you rapt over the marvels of nature.

Southern coastal region takes precedence over the rest for its unparalleled history, culture and architecture. Branded as the cultural capital of the Southern coast, Galle is also the fourth largest city in the Island. This historical City reveals appealing stories built around every pillar and post that dates back as far as the 14th century. Amidst all the enchantment, the fortified Dutch locality prevails as the epitome of Global intervention and Ceylonese inheritance.

Galle Dutch Fort was originally built by the Portuguese way back in 1541, was later strengthened by the Dutch in the year 1640. The Fort served as an incarceration camp by the Portuguese to imprison the very Sinhalese who were then absorbed in restoring the Fort to its present image by the Dutch. Galle Fort embedded with colour, texture and sensation, represents the spirit of medieval European architecture and personifies the immensity of the Dutch influence over Sri Lankan soil.

Over the years the Fort has steadily emerged not only as a tourist attraction but also as a place to unwind with its galore of cafes, shops, book stores, jewellery stores, villas and a historical museum. With UNESCO declaring it as a World Heritage Site, all measures are taken to preserve its Dutch architectural embodiment, with a few apparent differences to what it was 400 years ago.
