Negombo is the Catholic center of Sri Lanka and is known as the "Little Rome". Most of the residents believe in Roman Catholicism, so there are many churches, the largest and most luxurious of which is St. Mary's Church.
St.Mary Church, next to the fish market and Dutch Fort (Dutch Fortress), an old building that was built in 1794 and took 50 years to build. It looks very ordinary. But I loved the top painting here, saying that I saw a bunch of murals in the church in Italy in July, but here I have a completely different feeling. It can be said that every church has her soul. .
From the appearance, the church is milky white and has three layers of holiness. The sun shines through the colorful glass windows, making the church exceptionally sacred.
Sri Lanka is a multi-religious country, and Negombo is more representative. Hinduism, Buddhism and Catholicism are the most common.
Among the many churches in Negombo, the largest and most luxurious is the St. Mary's Church.
It was built in 1874 and has been repaired for a total of 50 years. The church is decorated in a solemn and elegant style. The ceiling of the nave has solemn religious murals that are well worth watching. The sun shines through the colorful glass windows, making the church exceptionally sacred.
After arriving at the church, I look at the appearance. In fact, I don't think it is like a church. It is more like a Dutch residential house. But the sculptural decoration of the details tells me that it is a church.
The interior of St. Mary's Church is far more worth seeing than the exterior. I am amazed by the murals on the ceiling.
Sunlight shines into the glass window, forming a colorful spot, very nice.
The dome of the church is very magnificent, and the murals on the ceiling are still unsatisfactory.
There are many devout prayers in the church. Although you can take pictures at will, but keep quiet and don't bother them~
There are some small churches beside the main church. Don't forget to visit too. a bit.
