0120. Srilanka - Galle Lighthouse

Srilanka Post on the occasion of the First anniversary of the Asian Tsunami released a Miniature Sheet comprising of 4 stamps on 26-Dec-2005.   

These stamps were released in remembrance of the Tsunami devastation which occurred on 26-Dec-2004.  An earthquake measuring 9.0 on the Richter Scale was felt soon after the Tsunami.  The magnitude of the earthquake, Tsunami and the year were depicted in the stamp(s) as well as in the Miniature Sheet.

The 33.00 (LKR) postage stamp depicts the Tsunami waves sweeping on the Galle Lighthouse built in the Galle Fort by the Dutch.

NOTE : Details about Galle Lighthouse is available in my Post No.0118....
