The lighthouse on Point Utrecht warms up as darkness falls, marking the dangerous rocks of Point de Galle, and the entrance to Galle Bay. Built by the British in 1939, the lighthouse was a replacement for the original wooden one — Sri Lanka’s first lighthouse, erected in 1848 — that had been destroyed in a fire in the mid-1930s. Point Utrecht, one of the major bastions of the Galle Fort, also houses a gunpowder magazine below the lighthouse. Shot in January 2022.
