Colombo, the largest city in Sri Lanka, is a beautiful tourist attraction. The serene beaches, ancient temples, and buildings with colonial architecture lure travelers to the port city. The strategic importance of Colombo, located on the western coast of the country, was understood by colonizers. Hence they made it their capital and trade harbor. To this day, the colonial buildings stand tall among the modern high rise buildings in the skyline of Colombo. The National Museum in the place depicts the history of Sri Lanka. Other attractions include the Gangaramaya temple, Viharamahadevi Park, Independence Memorial Hall, and so on.
A picture of the cultural diversity and historical significance of the country, there is no wonder Colombo became the most-visited tourist place in Sri Lanka.
