Notes on the Geography of South Africa: Paarl: Photo 20

world pictures South Africa: Paarl

Unlike many towns of the Western Cape, Paarl was unplanned and grew very slowly around this church, which was rebuilt and dedicated in 1805. It is known either as the Grasdakkerk ("grass-roof church) or, more commonly, as the Strooidakkerk ("thatched-roof church"). The sun at the top is capped by the words Sol Iustitiae Illustra Nos, or "Light of Justice Enlighten Us".
