Why All Saints Church is special ?

The All Saints Church at Hulftsdorp is one of the oft visited churches in Colombo. Apart from devotees, tourists also visit the place for its architecture and stained glass windows. The All Saints Church is built in the Gothic style of architecture and sports a long and beautiful spire. The stained glass windows and the sculptures inside the church are worth a visit.

What to explore at All Saints Church?

The All Saints' Church in Galle Fort is unmistakable if you're walking around there, with its tall gothic style columns and roof. This Anglican church is a popular tourist attraction for its epic age of 146 years and its well-preserved delicate stained glass work inside.

Fun fact: an engraving outside suggested that before it was a church it was a court house, and that the gallows might have been where the altar now is.

This was one time the tallest Church built in the Hill, this is situated at Hulftsdorp Colombo 12 It is at a walking distance from Colombo central bus stand. Just in front of Court complex (where the superior courts, High court, District Court and Magistrate courts are situated.) This was originally a seminary in 1815's , somewhere in 1860's this church was constructed by British engineers. This is very calm and beautiful place, Roof and ceilings are very tall and beautiful you should spent little time to admire this architecture. It is simply beautiful and tall. In the morning times of working days you may find it difficult to go the doorstep by vehicle due to traffic arrangements to the court complex but short distance you can walk across. Entry free and no other fees involved
