The city resembles no other city in Sri Lanka, and meandering around through the tight lanes makes you even overlook that you are in Sri Lanka. It really wants to walk the lanes of a medieval city in Europe! Extremely peculiar in away. Madu River is situated in the south of Sri Lanka close Galle. The water of the waterway is specked with little islands and the banks are altogether secured with lavish mangrove timberlands that are home to many unbelievable creature species. Appreciate many dynamic tropical winged animals and a couple of crocodiles in case you're fortunate enough. These animals are quite uncommon and don't care for groups.

Galle Fort Clock Tower
The Galle Clock Tower is a four-story tall stone monument hailing from the late 19th century. It was built within the ramparts of the Galle Fort on the site of the previous guardroom, overlooking one of the three bastions of the fort. While the aged clock tower is a great monument to photograph, it will take some skillful maneuvering due to the extreme angle close by. Hence it might be better to photograph it from the Moon Bastion which the tower faces.
