Day 4: Colombo
Stop At: Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple, 61 Sri Jinaratana Road, Colombo Sri Lanka
Gangaramaya Temple is one of the most important temples in Colombo, Sri Lanka, being a mix of modern architecture and cultural essence.Don Bastian (de Silva Jayasuriya Goonewardane, Mudaliyar), a famous 19th century shipping merchant who was looking for a suitable land to build a temple for the Matara Sri Dharmarama thero, bought a beautiful piece of land belonging to three Moors, and filled and prepared the land at great expense. The land bordered on two sides by the Moragoda Ela and the Pettigala Ela was used to build the temple, which was subsequently named the Padawthota Gangaramaya Viharaya. The Mudaliyar, with the assistance of the people built a great 'Chaitya' (Dagaba) of 30 Riyans, and built a great decorative arch (thorana) and a 'Sandakada pahana' modeled on the ones found at Anuradhapura, at the entrance to the temple. A 'Bo' sapling brought from the great Sri Maha Bhodiya in Anuradhapura, was also planted by his own hands and brought up. He also built a three-storied preaching hall and the walls, railings and the moat round the temple.
Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: Independence Square, Independence Avenue, Colombo 7 Sri Lanka
Independence Memorial Hall (also Independence Commemoration Hall) is a national monument in Sri Lanka built for commemoration of the independence of Sri Lanka from the British rule with the restoration of full governing responsibility[2] to a Ceylonese-elected legislature on February 4, 1948. It is located in Independence Square (formerly Torrington Square) in the Cinnamon Gardens, Colombo. It also houses the Independence Memorial Museum.
Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: Pettah Floating Market, Bastian Mawatha, Colombo Sri Lanka
The Pettah Floating Markets are located on Bastian Mawatha in Pettah, a neighborhood in Colombo, Sri Lanka, and consist of 92 trade stalls, with a number of the stalls established on boats on Beira Lake.[1] The floating market serves as a tourist attraction selling local produce and local handicraft.[2]
The development of the floating market and beautification works were carried out by the Urban Development Authority (UDA) at a cost of Rs. 150 million.[3] Engineering units from the Sri Lanka Army in collaboration with the Urban Development Authority transformed Bastian Street, the street linking the Central Bus Stand in Pettah and the Colombo Fort railway station, into a green environment. The Sri Lanka Navy rehabilitated the polluted canal running alongside Bastian Street. The unique simple architecture of the stalls along the canal, designed by Thushari Kariyawasam, with grey cemented floors and minimalistic dcor, tries to reflect the calm and undisturbed water of lake.[4]
The markets were officially opened by the Minister of Health, Maithripala Sirisena, on 25 August 2014
Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: Attidiya Bird Sanctuary, 114b - , Boralesgamuwa, Sri Lanka
Located in the outskirts of Colombo, Attidiya Bird Sanctuary is a small land (may be the only place near Colombo) for the birds and other animals to take refuge in. I came across Attidiya while looking for a place for photographing birds near Colombo. Though initially my hopes of finding any birds over there were low, I was surprised at the biodiversity which I encountered for a place that is right in the backyard of Colombo city. There were at least 15 species of birds, many butterflies and other insects, reptiles and many species of marsh vegetation. I even saw a porcupine wandering inside the marshes. People were saying that there is a Crocodile lurking in the canal and many snakes like cobra, viper and python live in the marsh. But I did not encounter any of them.
Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: Galle Face Green, Galle Road, Colombo Sri Lanka
Galle Face is a 5 ha (12 acres) ocean-side urban park, which stretches for 500 m (1,600 ft) along the coast, in the heart of Colombo, the financial and business capital of Sri Lanka. The promenade was initially laid out in 1859 by Governor Sir Henry George Ward, although the original Galle Face Green extended over a much larger area than is seen today. The Galle Face Green was initially used for horse racing and as a golf course, but was also used for cricket, polo, football, tennis and rugby.
