Have you ever realized that Colombo is built on layer upon layer of history that runs back to the ancient Kingdoms ? There is so much to see and do in Colombo, hidden from the first glance. Colombo consists of breathtaking architectural sites built during the ancient Kingdom of Kotte and under the ruling of three European Colonials namely Portuguese, Dutch, and British. After gaining control over Colombo, the British Colonials, planned Colombo as a “garden city”. The Fort, the innermost area of Colombo, housed the Parliament and Governors’ House, and had been the administrative capital of British Sri Lanka. today’s Colombo is truly a multinational and multicultural city with historically important religious and sacred shrines.
Since Colombo is the commercial hub and the center of culture and art of Sri Lanka, through a Colombo city tour you will be able to explore things that most visitors always wanted to know about sri lanka, but fail to do so before the end of their tour.
