About Independence Square & Independence Memorial Hall

The Independence Square is located on the east side of Colombo University and is the site where the 1948 Independence Ceremony of Sri Lanka was held. In the center of the square there is an Independence Hall built to commemorate Sri Lanka's departure from British colonial rule and simulate the meeting of the royal family and visitors during the Kandy Dynasty. In front of the memorial hall is a statue of the founding Prime Minister of Sri Lanka, Don Stephen Senanayake.
