In the year of 1640, the Dutch conquered Galle. It was them who built the continuous rampart in the year 1663, in the way how it's seen now. They built a fortified wall, using solid granite, and built three bastions, sun, moon and star. There was a developed town center, and a whole lot of buildings. Even today, after 40 decades from that incident it looks new and polished .There are many Moor families who live inside this fort along with Sinhalese, Dutch, English, Portuguese and Germans.Inside of this there are some famouse schools .government offices and many more.
