Colombo in Breif

Colombo stands as Sri Lanka’s commercial capital and the largest city with a population of nearly five million. It was the legislative capital of Sri Lanka until 1982. Located on the western coast of the island, Colombo is one of the best destinations in Sri Lanka with scores of attractions in the metropolis and suburban areas.

As an administrative district, Colombo remains the smallest yet most densely populated district of Sri Lanka. It is a busy and vibrant place with a mixture of modern life and colonial buildings and ruins. Due to its large harbor and its strategic position along the East-West sea trade routes, Colombo was known to ancient traders 2,000 years ago. It was made the capital of the island when Sri Lanka was ceded to the British Empire in 1815, and its status as capital was retained when the nation became independent in 1948. In 1978, when administrative functions were moved to Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte, Colombo was designated as the commercial capital of Sri Lanka.
