Mannar Fort is one of Sri Lanka’s hidden secrets. Today we hosted an information workshop about the past and potential future of the fort. We want to make sure it is conserved and cherished for many years to come. Our passionate and very knowledgeable guest speakers were Dutch researcher Lodewijk Wagenaar and his colleagues Oscar Hefting and Hans Westing. Participants included local government representatives, the Dept. of Archaeology, local guest house owners and interested community members #dutchfort #portuguesefort #heritageconservation #tourismsrilanka

Galle Fort
Built by the Portuguese in the 16th Century and then modified extensively by the Dutch in the 17th Century.
Sri Lanka had the name Ceilão given by the Portuguese when they arrived in 1505.
Makes use of the natural harbour in Galle in the Southwest of Sri Lanka which has been a popular trading port for over three thousand years.

“ Dutch Forts and Ceylon Tea 🍵#srilanka #teatime #dutchfortgalle

Today was a much different pace that our past couple of days. We wandered around the beautiful Dutch Fort Galle which is essentially the old town inside of the fort. You definitely see an odd juxtaposition of cultures here - a tuktuk parked in front of a century old colonial house or a snake charmer trying to draw a crowd in front of a stone clock tower.
After exploring the city, we headed about an hour away to take a tour of the Herman Tea estate where we learned far more than I ever expected there was to learn! #looseleaftea #ceylon #exploresrilanka #galle #dutchfort #tuktuk #oolong #honeymoon #clocktower #travelporn #travelgrams #adventurehoneymoon

The Naga Raksha mask, also known as the Snake Demon, uses a lot of colors and patterns to it. The most noticeable and attractive pattern is the hair which is shaped into cobras, therefore the name Snake Demon.A Raksha mask is a mask that Sri Lankans use a lot in festivals and cultural dances. Raksha means “demon” and the masks are apotropaic which means that it is intended to ward off evil. They are painted in vibrant colors, with bulging eyes and protruding tongues and they depict various types of demons. #gallefort #galle #gallecathedral #galleries #visitcolombo #visitgalle #visitsrilanka #dutch #dutchfort #visitdutchfort #dutchheritage #masks #srilankan #srilankanmasks #protection #decorativemasks #travelgrams #travelblogger #travel #travels #travelswithdeb #travelphotography
