Location

Area Info: Hotel Tamarind Hill is a 3.5-hour drive from Bandaranaike International Airport in Katunayake.

Address: Dadella, Galle, Sri Lanka

Area Info

The seaside town of Galle is 116 Km. from Colombo by road or rail down the southwest coast. Both routes are picturesque following the coastline closely for much of the way.

Todays town has grown greatly and spreads into the hinterland but the Fort is the slowbeating heart of Galles history. The walled city has stood since the early sixteenth century through the Colonial periods of the Portuguese Dutch and British and in our present times is proclaimed as an Archaeological Reserve and been identified as a living World Heritage Site.

The etymology of the name Galle is explained as probably a corruption of the Sinhalese gala a cattle fold or postingplace from which the Portuguese named it PointdeGalle. The simpler and more popular theory is found in the similarity of the Sinhalese word gala for rock which the Portuguese duplicated by adopting the Latin word gallus for rooster. They thus designed the coatofarms of the city as that of a rooster standing upon a rocky perch.

The Portuguese took Galle from the Sinhala kings in 1587 and erected the first fortifications a single wall fronted by a moat which extended from the sea to the harbor. The Dutch landed in 1640 with 12 ships and 2000 men under the command of Wilhelm Jacobsz Coster who defeated the Portuguese after severe fighting and a fourday siege.

The Dutch later converted the Portuguese fortalezza into a single bastion which they named Zwart Bastion and built a formidable line of defence ringing the walled town by ten bastions which endure to this day. Akersloot Bastion is named after the birthplace of Coster the Dutch commander who captured Galle. The name has been chiselled on a stone at the spot and also bears a date which however has no bearing on the date of erection of the Bastion. The grim old walls are a favourite promenade for Galles citizens and its visitors alike.

Through the rolling streams of Time and Change Galle still retains as few other towns in Sri Lankaan atmosphere of the past. The town was graced with considerable civic amenities and military features. Two hundred years ago there was introduced a stormwater drainage system which prevented flooding in the Fort so sophisticated as to have great bricklined underground drains which were automatically flushed twice a day by the tide.

Despite recent facelifts and new facades to many of the houses and the introduction of modern civic amenities like electricity telephone systems water and drainage services the streets remain narrow and many are known by their original names such as LeynBaan street Zeeberg street and Moderabaay street. A peep into the old houses reveal them to be spacious and airy with large ornamental doors and windows pillared verandahs and cool inner courtyards and gardens.
