  Galle Fort
by ak47uk

Take a walk around Galle fort. It takes around an hour to complete the trip. The fort was once occupied and built by the Dutch, Portuguese, and the English, the walls were made at the time when there was no cement so they used burnt coral ashes to get the lime and stuck it togethere with wax and honey. Galle Fort is also the place where many young courting couples come and hide under their umbrellas out of sight of their parents.
