Known to be over 120 years old, the temple lit up during the annual Nawan Perehera and should not be missed! Visit Beira Lake The murky waters of the Beira lake snakes through Colombo like a never-ending serpent. With a history of more than 100 years, the lake was built before the city was colonised, and since then has reduced in size due to years of new constructions. Visit Independence Square Colloquially referred to as Independence Square, this national monument in Sri Lanka marked the day, time and place when Sri Lanka signed their declaration of independence from the British rule on 4th February 1948. A statue of the first prime minister stands guarding the front entrance of the monument. Though unknown to many, be sure to visit the hidden museum located under the memorial hall. Visit Colombo national museum The National Museum is a treasure trove of artifacts, sculptures, monuments and relics that date back to the pre-colonial era when Sri Lanka was ruled by kings and queens. The National Museum was founded in 1877 and is located in the heart of the city. Be sure to visit all the sections of the museum in order to truly understand the history, culture and heritage of the land. Visit Colombo Dutch museum
