The Independence Memorial is in the center of Independence Square. In front of it is a statue of the founding Prime Minister, Sennayak. Behind it is facing the Little White House, surrounded by lion arches. It is said that it was modeled on the hall where the royal family received the visitors during the Kantian Dynasty, and we saw a sandalwood structure in the temple's supporting hall, almost exactly the same, only to reduce the proportion. The white-bottomed black-gold elephant decorative roof is supported by many stone pillars. The whole building has no wall. In the hot Sri Lanka, it creates a cool and peaceful place in the natural environment, so many citizens rest there.
It was built one year earlier than the founding of the People's Republic of China and is a symbol of Sri Lanka's independence. Each stone pillar in the memorial hall is carved with exquisite murals on every side, and they are different. And it is also a popular place to take wedding photos. On that day, many couples were seen taking pictures here, dressed in grand festival clothes.

The Independent Memorial Hall in the center of the square imitates the hall where the royal family met the pilgrims during the Kantian Dynasty.

On the back of the memorial is a statue of Prime Minister D&183, the founding father of Sri Lanka, Ssenyonayak.

It's a special place, but it doesn't really take much time. It's a scenic spot where you get off and take pictures and stretch your legs. What we need to see is that the relief slabs with 28 stories of Buddha on the top floor can learn from the local people, take off their shoes and sit in the hall for a rest. Next to the small white building can see what point to buy, some brands are cheaper than the domestic official website.
From Sri Lanka's White House, the National Museum has traveled all the way to Independence Square and Memorial Hall. I really like it when I go out in the hot sun!

There are many tourists from all over the world, some local schools organize students to visit, and some local young people to read and rest. Standing in the memorial hall, you can see the statue of Sri Lanka's founding Prime Minister standing on the square, and you can also look around the green grass. Buddhist designs are carved on one column of the memorial hall. The empty hall makes one imagine the pious pilgrims who occupied the hall during the Kantian Dynasty.
