What people are saying:

This is a porch to commemorate the independence of Sri Lanka. The ancient buildings here, surrounded by gardens, are a good place to take pictures. In front of the monument is a statue of the city's first prime minister. Recently, religious activities and annual National Day celebrations have been held here. The Independence Hall is also here. This is one of the best places I can find in Colombo to enjoy a quiet night. At the same time, it is also a leisure park, with a flat lawn, food stalls, and many rooms for exercise and relaxation.
