The Museum collects precious cultural relics of various historical periods in Sri Lanka, including various stone statues, bronze statues, gems, weapons, paintings and various knitted goods, metal products, folk arts and crafts during the Kantian Dynasty, armor of the last Kantian King, etc. There are also the Leo throne from Kangdi and Chinese porcelain unearthed from all over the country. The Zheng He Stele is a witness of Zheng He's visit to Sri Lanka. At the top, there are three inscriptions in Chinese, Arabic and Tamil, which mainly record the purpose of Zheng He's coming to Sri Lanka. This stone tablet proves that since the beginning of the Maritime Silk Road, there has been a friendly history of cultural and trade exchanges between China and Sri Lanka.
After arriving at the museum and purchasing tickets (600 rupees/person, camera plus 250 rupees), we enter the room for a visit. It's still hot in the hot noon sun, so it's much better to visit the room. The oldest museum in Sri Lanka was founded in 1877, and a two-storey grand white building in front of us is a new one built in 1980. Although the museum boasts a collection of cultural relics from various historical periods in Sri Lanka, we can see a lot of exhibits in the museum, but there are no antiques. The only one with the longest possible history is the Zheng He stele, which is also the witness of the Silk Road on the sea at that time. The stone tablet discovered in 1912 was erected by Zheng He, a famous navigator of the Ming Dynasty, at the Buddhist Temple of Mount Shixilan in Yongle Seven Years (1409) when he first visited Sri Lanka. According to the materials, the inscription is inscribed with the historical visit of Zheng He's fleet recorded in Chinese, Tamil and Persian. It also records the Buddha's gold, silver, silk, oil, 2500 Jin and various gold-plated and painted copper Buddhist temple decorations. Interestingly, in this inscription, Chinese recorded the Chinese emperor's reverence for Buddha, Tamil recorded the Chinese emperor's reverence for Hindu Vishnu God, and Persian praised Allah and Muslim saints, reflecting the Chinese emperor's reverence for Allah. The ancestors of China paid great attention to all aspects of the relationship when they were far away from other countries. Traditional culture has a long history of inheritance. In addition to tourists from different countries, more visitors are local people, and some students are guided by teachers to visit and study.

Sri Lanka National Museum. It's quite small. I don't think it's as big as Xuzhou Museum. Isn't the legend here free? The result also charged me 600RS, want to take pictures have to pay extra! I won't pay that money! The first floor is mostly stone carvings, stone carvings or something. The second floor is not bad. There is also a special exhibition hall for exhibiting Chinese porcelain. Most of these porcelain were brought by Zheng He when he went to the Western Ocean. In other words, none of the old wares in the official kiln can change to a house in the North of Shangguang. Foreigners should be interesting. They row the porcelain from bottom to top according to the size of their heads. Little wonder, some of the small guys are more valuable than the big ones. Most of the cultures on the pottery are not understood, but the last one should be Lv Bu in the three British wars! __________
The Colombo National Museum has 16 exhibition halls, and the corridors between them are filled with cultural relics. The content of the exhibition is very rich and precious, and it feels a bit like the integration of world culture here. The first time I went there was just a visit, but there were still many surprises. It was really worth coming.
Quite a lot of cultural relics, oh, very simple. The style is similar to that of India, but there are also many Buddhist styles.
The National Museum and Natural History Museum have a combined ticket of 600 rupees, so don't forget to visit another museum next to it. The camera ticket is 250 rupees. If you don't buy it, there will definitely be staff targeting you. The collection is particularly rich, and Sri Lanka is a must-come place.
A pure white European-style building appeared magnificently in front of me. It was the oldest museum in Sri Lanka. It was magnificent, magnificent and well carved in Italian style. In the garden, the white statue of Sakyamuni sits in it, surrounded by trees, quiet and peaceful. This is a place of peace and quiet. It's worth seeing. It is also the most worthwhile place to visit in Colombo. Not only are the collections inside, but the buildings themselves are also of great aesthetic and artistic value.
It is very beautiful and the guides are well informed, patient and kind. It is definitely a must in Colombo.
