A humble reminder of the glorious Dutch colonial era, the Dutch Church of Kalpitiya is one of the many attractions to explore in the area. There are many Sri Lanka resorts in which you can seek accommodation when taking a tour in this charming coastal town and Palagama Beach Kalpitiya is a recommended beach resort in Sri Lanka that offers comfortable accommodation for all. The belfry of the church resembles the ones at Galle and Colombo while the bell had been removed from it and moved to an Anglican Church in Puttalam. One finds many inscribed graves here, all of them dating back to the Dutch and British colonial era. The church has been renovated by the British in 1840 and three spires, a circular porch in brick and plaster pillars adorned with Corinthian Capitals had been added as a result.
