Colombo serves as the primary business and commercial hub, while Sri Jayawardhanapura Kotte functions as the new capital, located a short distance away. Initially a modest seaport, Colombo gained prominence in the 16th Century with the arrival of the Portuguese in 1505. Significant harbor development occurred during the British colonial period. Established as the capital in 1815 after the British acquisition of the Kandyan Kingdom, Colombo showcases remnants of Portuguese, Dutch, and British colonial architecture throughout the city. Although the fortifications from the Portuguese and Dutch eras no longer exist, some buildings and churches remain in the Fort and Pettah areas. Visitors can explore historical sites such as Fort, Sea Street, the Bazaar area, Kayman’s Gate, Dutch Church of Wolfendhaal, Kelaniya Buddhist Temple, Davatagaha Mosque, Colombo Museum, and the Natural History Museum. Additionally, a trip to BMICH, with the Bandaranaike Memorial and the replica of Avukana Buddha, as well as the Independence Memorial, is recommended. Return back to the hotel for an overnight stay.
