  1. This is most likely the Galle Fort- during the Dutch period , at the entrance to the Galle Fort .

    I remember seeing something like this at the entrance to the Galle Fort- when I visited it after the Beruwala events , when I did a trip to Hikkaduwa .
    Did not take a photo- but, will search my old albums and see what I have .

    I walked all over the Galle Ramparts – re- living my childhood in Galle !

    I saw something VERY similar- in Trinco- Anno 1675- at the entrance to the Fort Frederick .
    I did a little trip out to Trinco- Batti area after the Beruawala events and spent time inside the Fort Frederick .
    Deepthie .


  2. Ok- Oh well- I goooofed it !!
    Close though- being the Dutch Period at least – correct on this one ?

    by the way- where was the location of Ariya’s quiz ?


  3. Dear Sam,
    My answer to your picture quiz may be completely wrong
    But I must offer a view to keep the new competition going
    Could it be on the wall of entrance to a high class restaurant
    In ancient city familiar to you and I both, Sothern province, Galle?


  4. Jaffna Fort entrance- Built by Dutch. It is next to my school ( Jaffna central college). The grounds around the Fort was known to us as The 3rd ground where we used to play Tennis ball cricket. It was also a hiding place for some naughty kids – hiding from the Principal Rev C.A.Smith (from Adelaide)


  5. Hey Seelan !
    You are one smart well travelled person !!
    This MUST be the right answer . so, you score 2 out of 2 I bet !

    Rani- you Aussies are a well travelled clever bunch .

    At least I got the Dutch origin right- as I saw Fort Frederick in Trinco when I was there 2014 oct .
    I think, my brain is half frozen up here in Canada.!
    I am just having fun learning something in my dotage !!!!

    lets see what the Web Master has to say .– he has the Final Word !
