Colombo | Wolvendaal Church

Wolvendaal Church

This wolvendaal church was built by Dutch engineers and help with local labours and materials. Therefore, it took Dutch architectural style. 

This is a best place for history lovers because this church’s paintings, statues and graves are recall to the Dutch colonial period. The floor is tiled with tombstones of those who buried in the church. The final tombstone of the Dutch was sacrificed to Jan Gerard van Angelbeek, the last Dutch governor of Sri Lanka in 1799.

There is a dome placed in the middle of the roof of the Wolvandaal church. It is arched with brick and is guarded with a brazon lion. The lion carries a sword on one hand and 7 arrows on the other hand, it represents 7 provinces that were under the Dutch republic.
