Photo: Reminiscent of the tsunami – Galle Fort Post Office | Sri Lanka

The historic Galle fort was devastated during the 2004 tsunami. Sri Lankan government financially backed by Netherlands Government did a commendable job in renovating the fort and heritage buildings. Galle magically recovered from the ill effects of the disaster and infact this small ruined section of the Galle Post Office was the only reminiscent of the tsunami during my visit in 2015 and I guess by now this would have also been renovated. If you are planning to visit Galle fort make sure to spend at least couple of days to enjoy this colonial gem in Sri Lanka.
