About Colombo Lighthouse, Colombo
It's a shame one cannot climb up to the top anymore; access was restricted during the Sri Lankan Civil War. Still, the construct makes for some nice selfie opportunities and inventive photography. It was built in 1952, and has a height of 29 metres. At the base of the lighthouse is a naval gun battery, traditionally fired at least once a year on National Day, on the fourth of February. Also at the base are the statues of four seated lions. The best time to visit is during sunset. There is not much to do here.
