Dadalla Cemetery, Galle

Dadalla Cemetery
Dadalla Cemetery & the chapel is a graveyard with a chapel situated in Galle, Sri Lanka. 

The cemetery has been formed around a brick-built octagonal-shaped chapel. However, the four additions at the cardinal directions of the chapel have given it a cross-shape. Due to the presence of old tombstones dating from the 1890s, this cemetery and the chapel are thought to have existed here since the late 19th century or the early 20th century (Ranjith & Spijker, 2005).
