One of the most iconic tourist places in Colombo, Sambodhi Chaithya is a magnificent Buddhist stupa which is built in the shape of a space rocket!
Climb the 7 stories of stars to this space-aged concrete monstrosity overlooking the water in Fort. Inside is a panorama describing the bringing of Buddhism to Sri Lanka. Next to the Maritime Museum...
Nice location to see the port of colombo. It is better to have a visit on morning and evening. Binocular would be ideal.
You have to climb several flights of stairs to go inside this temple. Enjoy the views of the city while you do so.
This temple stands above the city of Colombo and looks impressive from a distance. Not the most interesting temple close up.
