About Nelum Pokuna Mahinda Rajapaksa Theatre, Colombo

Though the surrounding area is full of imposing and grand buildings, none are more eyecatching than the Lotus Pond Theatre. Built in 2011, inspired by the 12th-century Nelum Pokuna in Polonnaruwa, this state of the art venue with seating for 2576 is the city's favourite performance arts destination. Concerts, theatre, dance and even international conferences are hosted here. The curving, reflective facade is even more striking at night, when the venue is entirely lit up with multi-colored LED lights.

Nelum Pokuna Mahinda Rajapaksa Theatre, Colombo Reviews - Write a Review

  • One of the best maintained, vastly equipped, spacious seating arrangement, ample parking space availability theatre. Contains multiple dressing rooms and a vastly large ballet room for the performers/cast of a concert. Overall its a well designed theatre to support both the audience enjoy a concert with maximum impact, and the performers, cast of a concert to give an outstanding performance.

  • Hall is smaller than I had imagined, but overall it was a good experience. People in the first row are below the stage level in terms of their eye level. Best to avoid those seats.

  • This is the place to host any kind of show, concerts. Indoor/Outdoor. Very spacious environment. Parking is available.

  • I think this is the best theater not only in Sri Lanka but in whole Asia. Large stage with moving platforms, lights, large gallery, two level spacious balconies, comfortable seating arrangements, easy access to all the places, ample parking have given this theater a great marks to be on top. Anything displayed on this stage should be spectacular.

  • One of the most popular event venues in the country. It's maintained by the military so it's always kept clean and tidy. The main hall itself is impressive and accommodates about 1200 people while facilitating a wide ranging audio and visual technical setups.
