Localização

Colombo, Província Ocidental, Sri Lanka

Within walking from College House is the site of Colombo’s oldest Buddhist temple with a history of nearly 300 years. Formally constructed in 1785, the Deepaduttaramaya became famous as the epicentre of Buddhist revival in 1883 when the Ven Migettuewatte Sri Gunanada Thera took up residence in 1862 to launch the famous Five Great Debates, known as the Pancha Maha Vadaya. It was from this temple that he spread a revival of Buddhism against Christian Missionaries. Vesak, the celebration of the day Buddha was born was declared from the temple and the Buddhist Flag was raised for the first time from this temple. A Thai Prince was ordained as a monk at the temple and lived there for ten years.

Vibrant Kotahena is a neighbourhood that gives you an authentic local experience. The area is bustling, lively and colourful.
The shops are open late into the night and everyone should sample the delicious street food (dosas, hoppers, kottu etc) by taking a walk towards Kotahena Proper past the Kotahena Police, one of the earliest police stations built in the 1870s. Perera and Sons situated at the end of Mayfield Road have delicious Sri Lankan Rice and Curry Chicken or Fish with vegetables take away Lunch Packets for Rs 200. Try their Lamprais, a spiced Rice from a Dutch recipe baked in Banana Leaves, rs 350. The best upmarket version Lamprais at Rs 1200 is in Steurt Hotel down Hospital Street behind the Dutch Hospital.
The Flag and Whistle Pub on the Port side is a walking distance for a beer, coffee or tea and a harbour view and the city.

Pettah and Fort
Fort and Pettah have stood next to each other for 400 years but they remain worlds apart.
The wholesale markets of Pettah have made this part of Colombo
one of the most vibrant and colourful parts of Colombo. Pettah is known for its bustling and noisy open-air bazaars and markets.
Pettah is also of the most ethnically mixed parts of the city and the streets are dotted with several interesting Mosques, Hindu Kovils, Churches and Buddhist Temples. Check out the first city Town Hall, a museum now by the wholesale vegetable markets on Main Street.
One of the most striking buildings, even visible from the sea as reported by the Portuguese was the Colombo Grand Mosque, supposed to have been built by the Arab traders in 1505, located at New Moor Street.
The Caymans Gate on Main Street and Prince Street were one of the original Dutch Military Sentry Gates of three gates leading to the Dutch Fortification of The Colombo Fort. It was also Sri Lanka's first Police Post in the city.
On Prince Street, The Dutch Museum was originally the 17th-century residence of the Dutch Governor. It is now closed for renovations.
You also can find the little known 300-year-old Dutch Stables. You step into an ordinary-seeming shop front and proceed through a narrow corridor crammed with trading shops until you reach a thick wall and some columns. Now occupied by a printing press and some tiny accountants offices, the building has managed to survive without any organised preservation efforts is a testament to the quality of Dutch construction.
Fort is full of hidden gems of the city’s port city heritage and history. The Cargills Department store a faded but spectacular building and a prominent landmark, was once the temporary residence of the first British governor North. There is the Mackinnons building, The St Peter’s church, the foundations of which date to the Portuguese era, the view from the sailors club down the alley next to the Grand Oriental Hotel. Chatham Street’s arcades and shop-houses and tea houses on Baron Jayathilake Mawatha. Chatham Street’s clock tower is perhaps the oldest in Asia and its original timekeeping mechanism came from the same people who kitted out London’s Big Ben?
Plaques from the 17th-century Dutch building that previously stood on the site are incorporated into the interior walls of the Cargill building?
At the bottom of HSBC’s palatial Fort headquarters is the firm’s colonial era emblem – a ship laden with opium sailing to China? (Sadly they changed this in favour of the more PC hexagon at some point in the 21st century).
Chatham Street, intersected by Queens Street on the west and York Street further east where the main streets that housed both businesses and homes. Prince Street, parallel to Chatham Street ran straight down joining up with Main Street which flowed into the Pettah. The Grand Oriental Hotel, commonly referred to as the GOH, stood magnificent and tall by the port. Today it has been converted to the Hotel Taprobane a little faded but still with the best view of the Habour.



Queen's House, now referred to as President's House, stood on Queen Street, bringing back memories of so many memorable days of Portuguese, Dutch and British political rule, power and fisticuffs.
The lighthouse clock tower stood gallantly at the intersection of Chatham Street and Queen Street where it still stands tall. It was first built in 1857 and its conception and planning were carried out as far back as 1815.
