Stained Glass Window, St Paul’s Church

Kandy, 1848

A garrison church in the beginning, for the British troops, battling
The impregnable virgin jungles of the Kandyan summits
Shares scared ground with Temple of the Tooth Relic, and the four Devalas;
Its Italianate façade with Doric windows still preserving
Our Lord in his magnificence, and many hues
