What to see in Sri Lanka
Tourist attractions Colombo
Known for over 2000 years, the Portuguese baptised the capital of Sri Lanka with this name. Today it is a vibrant Asian city with a mixture of modern and historic buildings and even important ancient ruins. Don't miss a trip to Cargills & Millers, a Victorian department store which has now been declared a historical monument, or the Jami Ul Afar Mosque, with its minaret facing the port.
