St. Paul's Church

Saint Paul’s church is found right next to the temple of the tooth and is a brilliant example of Sri Lanka’s tolerant ways towards other religions. It’s very traditionally Anglican, just like you would find in the UK! It was built in 1848 and was used as a Garrison church for the British troops during the colonial era. It is quite a marvelous sight and a sign of the Colonial past of Sri Lanka that still survives today.
