Colombo 06 (Wellawatte)

Located immediately south of Bambalapitiya the city of Wellawatte is a busy and densely populated town with many textile and jewellery shops as well as restaurants and apartment complexes. A vast majority of the people living in Wellawatte are Tamils hence many of these shops too are owned by them. One of the city’s icons, the Savoy Cinema located on the border of the city has been one of Colombo’s favourite entertainment venues for many decades while the Wellawatte Beach, home to the Kinross Swimming and Life Saving Club, is also a very popular attraction here.
