This is a best place for history lovers because this church’s paintings, statues and graves are recall to the Dutch colonial period. The floor is tiled with tombstones of those who buried in the church. The final tombstone of the Dutch was sacrificed to Jan Gerard van Angelbeek, the last Dutch governor of Sri Lanka in 1799.
