After watching Gautham Menon's "Fear is ", does the motor vehicle in your hand invite you for a long journey? That is why we can say that vacancy is a place that God has created.
Occupying the southwestern coast of Sri Lanka and being easily accessible by international waters, Galle has always been a city that adapted itself to their culture whenever it came under the control of the Jaropia she. It can still be seen today around the city of Galle. Moreover, it would not be an exaggeration to say that such historical relics and traditions have made Kali a tourist destination.

Otherwise, the journey time to Galle on the southwest coast would be approximately three hours, making it an ideal route for bike travel.
Places to admire
In Galle, as in other parts of the world, there is no need to travel long distances to reach each tourist destination. Most of the ancient buildings and the beach mixed with nature are easily connected to the old fort.Basically the city of Galle can be divided into two. One would be running a restless modern city, including a train station, a bus station, and an empty international stadium. The other, irrelevant to any of these, is quietly set to reflect the city of Old Holland. You can park your car in this quiet city and walk around.
Gaelic Fort
From the moment we entered Galle, we could see the lighthouse rising from the sky and the walls of the fort still intact! The fort was first built by the Portuguese in 1588 to preserve the British settlements of the day. Still, Hollande played a major role in shaping its present form.
