Where can it be found

The Holy Cross Church is located along the main road in Kalutara South and takes a prominent place amidst the townscape. ( Just 01 Km from the clock tower). The church stands on an elevated site and faces the ocean, offering some great coastal views; it is little wonder that it has become a popular place for weddings too.

The exterior

The church can be reached via a flight of stairs and as you come up to its main doors you will notice such design elements as a clock in the center and across underneath. The outer facade is huge while you will also find a statue of the Virgin Mary outside under the title “The Immaculate Conception”.

The inside of the church is just as impressive with its high roof providing a vast space with distinctive arches, stained glass windows on top and across with the crucified Christ in the central part above the altar.
