Day 3

Colombo - History of Colombo dates back to 8th century when the Arab traders settled here and Dutch built a fort in the 17th century which gradually gained attention of the subsequent colonial rulers. Rapid urbanisation has removed traces of its’ early history. However some of the early British era buildings still remain in the Fort area. Colombo is Sri Lanka’s largest city, home to around a million people is also one of the busiest ports in the South Asia. Colombo was the capital for over two hundred years until the capital was shifted to nearby Sri Jayawardene Pura, but remains the business centre.

Colombo’s tourist attractions include old churches, temples, the old parliament, Independence Building and the National Museum, The Gallface Green is once a seaside race course now an open-air ground where locals flock for strolls in the evenings.

The Sovereign Hotel, Colombo: The Sovereign hotel is the 'a la mode' addition to the capital city of Sri Jayawardhanapura Kotte, conveniently located within minutes of a drive to the commercial city of Colombo.

The hotel consists of Sri Lankan authenticity and uniqueness in its ambiance catering to business visitors and transit travellers.

Away from the bustling Colombo yet close enough for a quick trip, the hotel maintains a calm and relaxing atmosphere with its green lawns and pathways framed with beautiful Sri Lankan flora & fauna.
