Colonial buildings in Galle

The Dutch Hospital in Galle used to be the hospital to the officers and other staff of the Dutch East India Company VOC.
Once the British captured the fort in 1796, the hospital with large breezy verandas became army barracks, and after that, the building had several other purposes including housing the Galle Town Hall. Nowadays the Dutch Hospital in Galle Fort is a popular shopping and dining precinct with panoramic views of the Indian Ocean.
