About King Sri Wickrama Rajasinghe Prison Cell, Colombo
There are many places you can expect to find a king's prison cell. But the parking lot of a financial institution would probably not be it. It can be a little hard to find, but you're looking for a bright yellow room, standing sort independently, but up against a wall. It is right under the Ceylinco tower, in front of the Bank of Ceylon. It is INSIDE the Ceylinco complex, so you won't be able to get in when the complex is closed. You can view the images of the king through the bars. Outside the room is an inscription on the last King of Sri Lanka.

This is said to be the place where the Last King of Sinhale, King Sri Wickramarajashinge was kept until he is deported as a royal prisoner by the British to Vellore Fort in southern India. Some says he was not in this cell and he was kept in a house nearby, which is no longer exists. According to the plaque on this cell it says he was surrended on 18th February 1815 and deported on 24th January 1816. He died on 30th January 1832.
It's in the shadow of the World Trade Center towers and the Bank Of Ceylon tower and right next to the Kingsbury Hotel and Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct. The monument is also literally in the Ceylinco parking lot.
