A short stay in Colombo

Colombo Fort Presidential Secretariat Building in Sri Lanka:

Due to its large harbour and its strategic position along the East-West sea trade routes, Colombo was known to ancient traders 2,000 years ago. It was made the capital of the island when Sri Lanka was ceded to the British Empire in 1815. While returning from our trip to Maldives in April, 2010 we stayed in Colombo for two nights and three days.
