The Galle Fort Lighthouse was literally at a stones-throw from our stay. It overlooks the beach and has a promenade running all the way to the other end of the town. There is a little shore right by the lighthouse, under the shade of the foliage, that we also spent some time at. Just opposite, we found a beautiful white mosque which immediately grabbed our attention. Meeran Masjid is indeed a sign to behold and stand out in its white unique architecture against the bright-blue sky. While strolling the streets of Galle Fort the same morning, we came across Anura's Cafe. The place had a very vibrant ambience and offered great options for brunch, that we absolutely gorged on. After a heavy brunch, we strolled to the National Museum of Galle which has splendid artefacts and other articles. The caretaker also guided us to a wishing well, where we took turns to toss coins into – I now await my wish to come true! The All Saints Anglican church is right down the street from the museum and is centuries old with colonial-era styled architecture. The interior of the church was serene and peaceful. The town-streets are lined with some of the best Gelato we’ve ever had. On a hot-summer day, this comes a blessing to tourists like us, looking to explore every nook. This pretty much concluded the first day at Galle, with a scrumptious sea food dinner at Peddar’s Inn, by the sea.
