Overview

This vibrant port city was known to ancient Greek and Roman traders, and was colonised by the Portuguese, the Dutch and the British, leaving it with an architectural legacy that has made it one of the most attractive cities in south Asia. Discover the top sights and attractions such as the Gangaramaya Temple and the famous Pettah market. Vibrant, bustling and colourful Colombo is a city that captures the heart of all visitors. Its mix of cultures, religions and languages merely adds to its aura and mystique. See how these combine with historic landmarks such as the Pettah Dutch Bell Tower at the Kaiman Gate. Head to the historic district of Slave Island, where Portuguese and Dutch colonists held African captives, and admire the famous Hindu temple dedicated to the Lord Ganesh, with its multicoloured gopuram packed with figures. See the stunning Gangaramaya Buddhist temple, which, like the city itself, blends old and new. Admire the banks of Buddhas and stupas, all perfectly in line. Other places of interest are some of the city’s residential areas, where you find stately homes of the affluent, and the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall, a gift to Sri Lanka from the People's Republic of China. There is also the option to visit the House of Fashion and the Premadasa Jewellery and Arts Centre, and the National Museum. Languages English.
