Independence Mamorial Hall Colombo also known as The Independence Square. This iconic Colombo attraction celebrates Sri Lanka’s Independence from British colonial rule.
The National Museum Colombo first opened in 1877 with only 800 exhibits showcasing some aspects of the history and culture of Sri Lanka. Today, it has over 100,000 exhibits and the most important library on the island.
Imagine a rural village in the middle of a busy metropolis. This is what “Ape Gama,” which literally means our village, promises its visitors. This curious attraction, that reimagines what Sri Lankan village life was like decades ago, is situated in Sri Lanka’s capital city, across the lake from the Geoffrey Bawa-designed Parliament building.
