Galle, the Dutch Fort The largest city on the South Coast is Galle, which is surrounded by a gigantic Portuguese and Dutch Fort that is a "World Heritage Site" and is the oldest monument in the area. The city, nevertheless, might be considerably older. Some academics think it's the "Tarshish" of the Old Testament, where Jonah hid from the Lord and where King Solomon dispatched his trading ships.

The Portuguese founders of the 90-acre Galle Fort are no longer visible. In 1663, the Dutch built a massive rampart over the Portuguese northern wall. They constructed a second, taller wall inside of it. The central bastion of the Fort was joined to the two sea-facing half bastions by a covered passageway that ran between the two walls.

A sophisticated drainage system was also put in place by the Dutch, replete with underground sewers lined with brick that were cleansed twice daily by the high and low tides. The harbor served as the fort's original entrance. It is still standing, bearing the Dutch V.O.C.'s coat of arms with a rooster crest on the inner side of the Fort and the British Coat of Arms on the front.
