The Independence Square is located on the eastern side of Colombo University, the iconic Cultural Square, which was the site of the independence ceremony held on February 4, 1948, in Sri Lanka. The Independence Hall in the center of the square was built during the Kangdi Dynasty when the royal family met with the pilgrims. There is a fountain in the middle. The Lankan people like to go for a walk in the evening. The green lawn around the square surrounds the Independence Hall and is decorated by stone lions. The back of the memorial hall is the statue of the founding Prime Minister of Sri Lanka, D.S. Sitting here to see the White House in the distance, the flag flutters on the west side. Many young people come here to spend time reading, and resting here during the sunny days. It is a place to study in a quiet and calm environment.
