Old Town of Galle and its Fortifications,Sri Lanka.


Sri Lankans’ greet you with ‘Ayubowan’, a word that means much more than just ‘hello’. It means, may you have long life and be happy always.
Galle is the best example of a fortified city built by Europeans in South and South-East Asia, showing the interaction between European architectural styles and South Asian traditions.It was founded by Portuguese in 16th century.
Nimasha in Sri Lanka sent this scenic card.Thank you very much.
