Galle Fort Clock Tower
Galle Fort, in the Bay of Galle on the southwest coast of Sri Lanka, was built first in 1588 by the .... site of Portuguese Roman Catholic church; the All Saints Anglican Church built in 1871; the 1882 Clock Tower and the 1939 Galle Lighthouse.
Galle Fort Clock Tower
The Galle Clock Tower (or Anthonisz Memorial Clock Tower) is located within the Galle Fort in Galle, Sri Lanka. The Clock Tower is a popular landmark and overlooks the central Moon Bastion, on the site of the former guard room. The Clock Tower was constructed in 1883, paid for through public subscriptions by the people of Galle, in recognition of Dr. P. D. Anthonisz. The clock itself was the sole gift of a grateful patient, Mudaliyar Samson de Abrew Rajapakse.
The plate on the clock tower carries the inscription:
This tower erected by public subscription to the perpetual memory of Peter Daniel Anthonisz (born in Galle) in testimony of his skill and benevolence in relieving human suffering. MDCCCLXXXIII.
Dr Anthonisz (1822-1903) was a renowned Burgher doctor, who served as the Colonial Surgeon for the Southern Province and as a representative on the Legislative Council.
The tower is roughly four storeys high and is situated immediately inside the fort ramparts.

벤토타를 떠나 다시 기차를 타고 3시간을 더 달려 갈레에 도착했다. 갈레는 향신료 무역항으로 번성했던 곳이다. 때문에 서구 열강들의 끊임없는 침략 흔적이 남아있는 곳 이기도하다. 이 시계탑은 오랜 식민 역사를 보여주는 상징물이다. “정확히는 모르지만 영국과 포르투갈의 식민지였던 곳이죠” “스리랑카는 유럽인들에 의해 정부가 세워지고 이곳에 항구가 건설되었죠. 저는 이곳이 역사의 한부분이고 세계의 일부분이라고 생각해요” 16세기 포르투갈이 이곳에 성채를 세우기 시작했고 이후 네덜란드 영국을 거치며 전체가 성벽으로 둘러싸이게 되면서 갈레는 난공불락의 도시가 됐다. 지금은 많은 관광객들이 찾아와 성벽을 거닐며 당시의 모습을 상상하고 있다. “스리랑카의 식민시대에 대해서는 잘 모르지만 이곳은 정말 평화로운 곳 같아요. 모든 것이 잘 유지되어서 전 여기가 정말 좋아요”

I left Bentota and took the train again for three more hours and arrived in Galle. Galle flourished as a trading port for spices. It is also the place where there is a constant invasion trace of the Western powers. This clock tower is a symbol of long colonial history. I do not know exactly, but it was a colony of England and Portugal. Sri Lanka was built by Europeans and a port was built here. I think this is part of history and part of the world. In the 16th century, Portugal started to build a fort here, and later through the Netherlands and England, the entire city was surrounded by walls, making Galle an impregnable city. Now, many tourists come to the city and imagine what they were like at the time. I do not know much about the colonial era of Sri Lanka, but this place is really peaceful. I really like it because everything is well maintained

Best City in SRI LANKA! - Galle, Sri Lanka
We spent the day visiting Galle Fort which quickly became our favorite city in Sri Lanka thus far! We were so impressed by the vibrancy that we decided to take you guys on a Galle city tour! See the Galle Lighthouse, best places to eat, and the famous fort along the waters edge.
One of the best places to visit in Sri Lanka is Galle, a colonial fort city and the largest city in Southern Sri Lanka. We started the day flying the drone on Galle beach which looked to be a fantastic getaway spot for tourists and locals alike. We met a really nice Sri Lankan family and it was nice to get some warm Sri Lankan hospitality!
We then headed to the famous Galle lighthouse, which we’re sure you’ve seen all over your instagram feed. The Galle lighthouse is the southern most tip of Galle city and serves as a big tourist attraction right on the water.
After the lighthouse, we headed over to the Galle clock tower to see the actual fort which was first constructed by the Portuguese. The fort was massive and we had a great time exploring that part of history from one of the oldest cities in Sri Lanka.
By this time, we’ve worked up quite an appetite so into the city we went! It’s the colonial charm that makes Galle so special and if you want to explore Sri Lanka in a more modern way, Galle is the city for you. With streets upon street of cute local shops and restaurants, Galle city has everything you need for a holiday or day long visit.
